Moral Reasoning and Conduct of Selected Elementary School Students

Journal of Moral Education 7 (3):199-205 (1978)
Abstract In order to explore the relationship between moral reasoning and conduct, 38 Grade Six students, deemed by their teachers to display ?delinquent? or ?non?delinquent? characteristics, were administered Kohlberg's Moral Judgment Instrument (Kohlberg et al., 1973) and an IQ test. Subjects were then randomly assigned to three treatment groups: a) experimental??discussion of moral dilemmas; b) placebo??social studies games; c) control. A month later Kohlberg's instrument was readministered. Findings indicated that ?delinquents? and ?non?delinquents? differed significantly (p = .001) on moral reasoning scores at both testing times. There was no statistically significant treatment effect (p = .06). Intelligence quotient was significantly and positively related to moral reasoning for ?non?delinquents?, but not for ?delinquents?
