Default Adapt Questions

Is it normal for ADAPT to put test questions that I had previously gotten wrong on other tests?

On a given test I see about 5-10 repeat questions that I have had on a recent exam. Usually they are questions that I had gotten wrong originally.

I'm just not sure if this is the case for everyone or if there is a setting that I can turn off to stop repeat questions from popping up. I know that ADAPT doesn't have an unlimited question bank so obviously repeats are bound to happen I just didn't know if it happening this frequently is the norm?

Yes this common.

I'd say that if you got them wrong it's a good thing that it's asking you again because you need to learn how to do those questions. Doing a question over several times helps to strengthen the connections in your mind so that on exam day you'll easily recall how to do those types of questions.
