Research Studies Reporting Experimental Effects in the Moral/Ethical/Values Domain: An Annotated Bibliography. Planning for Moral/Citizenship Education.
Hill, Russell A.; Wallace, Joan D., Ed.
This document contains abstracts of experimental research studies dealing with the training and acquisition of behaviors, skills, and dispositions which can be termed "moral" in themselves or can contribute to moral/ethical behavior. More specifically, the entries represent controlled experimental studies which describe a treatment and measure treatment results. The document presents abstracts of over 1,500 documents published after 1960. The majority are published reports of research in professional psychology or educational psychology journals, others are unpublished dissertations or research findings, and a few are summaries of projects within elementary or secondary school classrooms. Most of the studies involve quantitative techniques of evaluation and populations of five or more subjects. Direct or indirect relevance to the development of educational programs is indicated. The abstracts are classified by major effect areas, which are defined as general categories of reasoning, affective states, and skills and behaviors that are produced or affected by training in the moral/ethical/values area. The 15 effect areas are aggression, altruism, attitudes, conflict resolution, conformity, cooperation, empathy, moral development/judgment, reasoning and judgment, reaction to transgression, resistance to temptation, risk taking, role taking, self-control, and values. Effect areas are arranged alphabetically and studies are ordered alphabetically by author within each area. The definition for each effect area precedes the section and the treatment techniques are identified in the heading for each abstract and used as entries in the subject index. Author and subject indexes are included. (Author/DB)
