A Developmental Study of the Person Perception of Young Children.
Morrison, James K.
This document presents a summary of a dissertation concerning the developmental relationship between moral judgment and person judgment. Subjects were 144 middle class male first graders and sixth graders from paroachial schools. The children watched three films of a boy doing damage. The experimentally crucial film showed the same boy transgressing on purpose or by accident, and within the context of one of three mitigating circumstances (anger, unreasonable request, or favor.) The Global Rating Scale, Behavior Prediction Test, and Projective Film Test were used as dependent measures. Developmental differences were apparent, and were discussed in terms of cognitive developmental theory. (DP)
