The Gender Debate about Identity and Moral Development Continues: What about the Men?
Pearson, Frances C.; Bruess, Brian J.
This study was designed to help determine whether there are gender differences in the psychological and moral development of traditional-age college students. Two hundred thirty-three first-year and graduating students were given the Student Development Task and Lifestyle Inventory (SDTLI) and the Defining Issues Test (DIT) to determine whether these gender differences exist. Results show that men scored lower than women in Principled Moral reasoning, Davidson's moral index, Academic Autonomy, and Purpose. Recommendations for practice and for research are discussed. Contains 6 tables and 57 references. (Author/BT)
