I think rubrics are a developmental thing and not all kids are ready to use them effectively in 3rd grade.    I feel that having 4 samples to compare their work to will make them much more accountable.    It’s visual. I will be able to say, “which sample does your writing most look like and why?” and ALL students can verbally respond to that. I don’t feel the same is true for a text-only rubric.
