    I have only submitted one paper, but I think as long as you go by the rubric you should be fine. They gave feedback on each of the categories in the rubric and were pretty specific in their feedback. The grading seemed appropriate to me. If your son has 4 papers even if he does not do great on the first, he can see how they grade and still have three papers to improve on.
