## Math assessments

Codio allows you to set and grade math questions for any type and level of mathematics. As of September 2017, we only offer manual grading of mathematical expressions or proofs.

From November 2017, we will be adding support for sophisticated auto-grading of questions in the areas of algebra, trigonometry, matrices and calculus.

## Manually graded assessments using free text

To create a manually graded math question, you can use the **Free text** assessment type. This allows the students to enter expressions or even full proofs and worked answers using Latex. For more information about Latex, please click here.

You can enter Latex in the **Question** and **Answer rationale** fields.

You should also set the **Preview type** drop down to either **Plaintext + Latex** or **Markdown + Latex**. Both of these ensure that the student sees a preview pane beneath their answer entry fully rendered in markdown and/or Latex. Please click here to review the free text assessment.

## Multiple choice

You can also use the multiple choice assessment type to create answers containing properly rendered Latex expressions.
