HIPPing Docs

Do you still get the HIPP point even if the analysis of the doc does not fit within the paragraph? Like the doc is not supposed to be in a group?

Hi @ethan-wolfson

Be careful! The HIPP point is earned when you explain why the document’s point of view, purpose, historical situation, and/or audience is relevant to an argument.

In other words, the document you HIPP must move your argument forward, it can’t just be out there in left field. The document must fit with your argument in that paragraph.

The official exam rubric is available here, if you’d like more information on exactly how your DBQ will be graded.
