Reading questions on state test

So today we administered the state reading test. I tested a student who receives one on one testing and one of his accommodations is having questions read to him. I don't know how other state tests are, but ours has lots of questions with quotes from the passages both in the question stem and in the answer choices. We are basically allowed to read everything unless it is a paragraph from the passage. As the mother of a learning disabled child, I don't begrudge them appropriate accommodations, but why in the world are we reading them questions and answers on a reading test? It feels to me that it is an unfair advantage, and most importantly, not reflecting what the student can do as a reader. What is the point?
