The Relation of Self Concept to Moral Judgment in Young Children.
Benninga, Jacques S.
This study investigated the relation of self-concept to moral judgment in young children. Forty kindergarten children between the ages of 5 years, 1 month and 6 years, 6 months with I.Q.s ranging from 82 to 144 were each administered a self-concept appraisal and The Moral Judgment Test. Product moment correlations evaluated the relationship. A multiple regression analysis evaluated the significance of the relative predictive power of self-concept for moral judgment. This initial investigation revealed a nonsignificant relationship between global self-concept and total moral judgment scores. When the self-concept and moral judgment scores and their respective factors were collapsed, however, all three of the factors of moral judgment correlated significantly with at least one self-concept factor.
