Memo No. 6 For Parents | March 07, 2022



07 March 2022


Dear Parents / Guardians:


In its goal of producing holistically developed learners, the Department of Education in its Memorandum DM-OUCI-2021-395 reiterates its stand on maintaining academic honesty while upholding every learner’s integrity. DepEd stressed that academic honesty is a “foundational element of learning and fundamental principle of all academic institutions. Violations of the principle deprive learners of the opportunity to gain a confident command of the material they are credited with knowing, degrade the learning process, and demean the learning quality that the DepEd is committed to promote.”


Academic dishonesty, on the other hand, is defined as any conduct that obstructs the evaluation of a learner’s progress by misrepresenting the work being assessed and evaluated, as well as the learner’s actual knowledge (www.wpi.edu). Academic dishonesty can take many forms, which can be broadly classified as follows (Whitley & Keith-Spigel, 2002):

The school recognizes the limitations of managing assessments in the current learning set-up; however, we encourage teachers, students, and parents to seek out opportunities to teach academic integrity among learners and discourage them from feeding on laziness and instant gratification as this will generate devastating effects on their values.
