Loomis, Michael J.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Azusa Pacific University
This research uses the Defining Issues Test-2 (DIT-2) to investigate the cognitive moral development of college seniors in adult degree completion (ADC) programs and traditional undergraduate (TU) programs at three Council of Christian College and University institutions. Overall, TU students had significantly higher scores on the DIT-2, TU students in the West and Midwest scored significantly higher than those in the South, Volunteerism did not correlate with DIT-2 scores. There was an inverse correlation between religious orthodoxy and DIT-2 scores for the sample and TU students; the same two groups also demonstrated a significant correlation between religious orthodoxy and self-reported conservatism. Finally, the sample did not score significantly higher on the DIT-2 than the 42.3 average for American university students.
