What does (OE) mean?

I’m seeing the (OE) being used at the end of certain sentences in the DBQs shown, what does it stand for?

Hi @jared.yin_57112

OE stands for Outside evidence. It’s also called OI [outside information]

Thank you! Sorry if this seems obvious, but should we include the (IPP) and (OE) in our actual essays? Or are they just included here to point out the purpose of the sentence?

yes! you need HIPP and OE to get full points.

Is OI for the same point as HIPP?

It is not, OE is a separate point

Just to clarify what Lee said, although you need to include those points, you do not need to explicitly state in parentheses that you are doing either of them - just do them.
