Repeated reading has been widely accepted as a tool to measure the accuracy and speed of reading and therefore it is recognized as a key element to determine if students are becoming more fluent readers and it is also used as a helping hand to monitor and improve fluency in those cases meriting additional help to get students in a reading level appropriate for their age and grade.

I think that the most important key point is that repetition can help kids learn and remember what they read.

Timed repeated reading uses a very down-to-earth approach that is perceived as not quite technical or formal, therefore putting the tested student in a relatively low stress level that helps him or her perform to their average potential in a normal daily life scenario. The short time span for reading, usually one minute or a few minutes does not tire them a lot, and increasing the times of reading repetition from three to four times can improve their confidence and desire to improve.
“Reading the passage at least four times increased reading fluency more than two to three times…repetition is a critical variable, and automaticity was based on retrieval (memory) rather than adjustment of reading procedures (e.g. word decoding strategies…)
~Lee and Yoon
