Isn īt the register a book where you keep attendance and assessment records?
Here īs what you can find in the Oxford Advanced Learner īs Dictionary:
(British EnglishThe teacher called the register (= checked who was present at school).

In British English ītake the register ī is fine.  It īs when you call out all the names and note down who īs there. That īs what I say when I start a lesson īok guys, let īs take the register ī :)

  Roll-call is what Iīve always used, which means "a process of calling out a list of names to establish who is present."
 
  Happy dreams.
