Depends...

I think it depends. Did you say they needed in text citations? At least one teacher? Was it taught and modeled? Did they see examples with it? If it was on the rubric, did you mention that and point that out to them? Did you look at any rough drafts and mention there were no in-text citations? Or did the students do peer editing, where they looked for in-text citations? Honestly, if you did some or all of the things I listed, I would say it's their fault and leave it. It stinks, but too bad, so sad...they had multiple opportunities. That's my opinion. However, if someone dropped the ball so to speak and one teacher thought another teacher taught it and that teacher thought the other taught it, and it wasn't mentioned, then I think you give them the papers back, teach the in-text citations, and then given them a day or two to fix it before regrading it.
