# Math Assessments¶

Codio allows you to set and grade math questions for any type and level of mathematics using the **Free Text** assessment. We only offer manual grading of mathematical expressions or proofs.

## 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](/courses/authoring/#latex-for-math-expressions). **Update when page added for authoring**

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.
