Abstract: Using step?wise multiple regression analyses regression equations were generated for sixty school age subjects with choice and stage of moral reasoning on moral dilemmas as the dependent variables. Age, IQ, SES, awareness of consequences, empathy, and selected mean moral maturity scores were used as the predictor variables. It was found, although the amounts of total variance explained were small (.392), that age and empathy were the primary predictors for stage of moral reasoning and the biographical variables (IQ, SES, age) were the primary predictor variables for choice on moral dilemmas. The implications of the findings for further research and curriculum were discussed
