Checking your students’ reading when they are reading at home
Mreader.org — Virtually all of the ‘graded readers’ that are being offered have quizzes on MReader.org. (In all we have 7500+ quizzes). Free free to apply for your school. See https://mreader.org/mreaderadmin/s/html/about.html for more information.
Using a Google Spreadsheet — Tom Robb has prepared a Google spreadsheet that you can copy, paste in the names of your students and click a button to make a separate tab for each student to enter what they have read (not just books, online material as well) and provide feedback. The top “Master” page shows you the totals for each student. The spreadsheet is here: https://tinyurl.com/Google-Reading-Record
See this link for a quick tutorial: https://screencast-o-matic.com/u/vly/RR-howto
Note that you will need a Google account, and during the setup process, you need to agree to access a non-secure page. This is because the code that creates the pages has not yet been registered with Google.
