When students are learning to read, they often need to see new words multiple times in order to remember them. That’s why Star Reading repeats questions throughout the assessment – to make sure students have plenty of opportunities to encounter new vocabulary.
Plus, seeing words multiple times can help students read faster. The more times students see a word, the more likely they are to recognize it quickly when they encounter it again. So, by repeated questions, students not only learn new vocabulary, but they also build up their reading speed and fluency.
