We've had numerous discussions about how to mark the comprehension rubric when a child goes back and looks in the story.
Some believe if a child looks back and can then name what's asked they should get all three points because they've used skills they have to get that information others believe at the younger levels all they're doing is going back and looking at the pictures to get the gist of the story and that anyone could do that and they shouldn't be given full credit for it.
Would you weigh in on how we should count the points when they use the book. Just to clarify-----we don't tell them to look back but we do allow them to. If they begin reading we tell them to say it in their own words. Right now it's making a difference in the our comparison scores across the board in our building.

The rubric does not specify scoring based on whether the student looks at the text, is prompted, or any of those behaviors. If the student responds and can talk about the text under any of those conditions the score should be the same (as long as no leading to the response is done by the teacher). For younger students the meaning is in the illustrations while for older readers meaning is found in the words; so looking back is the same strategic action of searching for meaning, the source is different based on the appropriate level of learning.
The scoring is based on the student's ability to articulate his/her thinking according to the descriptors.
Best wishes for success!
