In order to measure my "Remembering the Kanji" progress as well as to practice recognition of the kanjis in a real-life context, I would like to have access to texts whose kanji selection is restricted to Joyo kanji, but that use a wide variety of these kanjis. The texts should be available online, so I can copy and paste them into kanji koohii's Kanji recognition engine. Does anyone here know about a resource that I can use?

I know this is not what you asked for, but when I was doing RtK I did this:
I installed "Vocabulary Highlighter" (a Firefox add-on). Then I downloaded a list of "jis level one" and "jis level two" kanji (I'm not sure but I think "jis 1" coincides with the jouyou kanji). Then I removed from the list all the kanji I knew, and I divided the remaining kanji in two lists: "jouyou kanji that I still don't know" and "non jouyou kanji".
I added those two lists inside the vocabulary highlighter plugin, and I selected a different color for each list.
I removed gradually the kanji from the "jouyou kanji that I still don't know" list, as I studied new kanji.
This way, every time you visit a japanese website, that add-on will highlight of, let's say yellow, all the jouyuo kanji that you haven't studied yet, and of another color the non-jouyou kanji. While the kanji that you know won't be highlighted.
So you can visit every website you want and focus only on the kanji you know, while glissing on the other ones.
Hope this helps ._.
PS: I too started RtK in production mode but then I switched the other way after some users here suggested it to me. I found this method more effective and less time consuming (but consider that I already knew a good amount of japanese words, and I studied the on-yomi too, so that while reviewing I went from kanji to japanese word, and not an english keyword/meaning).

Thanks. Sounds like a great idea. On the other hand, it also sounds like it would be an awful lot of work to create and maintain these lists.
Or some even mean the opposite of what you'd think based on the kanji. E.g. 素敵. Elementary + Enemy = Amazing??? WTF Japanese people?
