Are there any reading comprehension websites or platforms that are for teachers only. I have a parent that is giving their child the correct answers to written comprehension questions on Readworks. I don't know of another program to replace it where they can't just log in and do it again.

If a parent is willing to do that to help their child on Readworks, they will find ways to do it on anything you give, I would guess. Try taking grades only from things the child does online with you and anything else is for practice.

There are so many parents who don't know where to draw the line between helping and hindering. I do wish they could see that.

There are many comprehension activities that you can purchase from TPT if you want to go that way.

ReadTheory

What about read theory? They still could give the kids the answers, but they can't redo anything. I often have my kids complete (or pass) at least 1 Readtheory test in class.

The site is readtheory.org

Until the parent buys the product to get the answer key! Had that happen a time or two!

I don't even know what emoji would be most fitting for that situation!

CommonLit?

I use CommonLit, and while parents can help their children with it, most have given up because it's rigorous. I also teach fifth, and I've gotten through to most parents that their children need to get more independent, and answers "given" are not retained.

They could get answers (They offer parent/guardian accounts.), but you could do as OPs suggested. Anything at home is for practice. Key in-class assessments are for grades.

Kahluaís right. And honestly, itís indicative of a bigger, home issue that you have no control over. If I really want them to show what they know I have them do it with me and I remind them itís an only their own activity.

Beyond that, all you can do is document. Some of these kids are going to have a nasty surprise when we go back f2f.

Reminds me of long ago when I had a homebound student who was turning in almost-perfect algebra homework. Then she returned to class and had to take in-class tests. She failed.

I say this ALL.THE.TIME. There are a bunch of parents that are blinded by the fact that they are not helping at all. I videotaped a parent the other day sitting next to her son during a math test. He spent the entire time looking around the room. Mom earned a 70. I noted it in the grade book.

I have used readtheory for a couple of years. It is self leveling, based on your performance. We used it in class a few times before we went virtual. I teach second grade. I had a student reading on a first grade level. parent asked me why the child was getting 6th grade passages. The reason? Mom was reading them to her. So of course the program thinks your child can read it!
