Moral Judgement Changes among Undergraduates in a Capstone Internship Experience
Craig, Patricia J.; Oja, Sharon Nodie
Journal of Moral Education, v42 n1 p43-70 2013
This mixed-methods study explored the moral growth of undergraduates in a recreation management internship experience. The quantitative phase reported moral judgement gains in Personal Interest and Post-conventional schema, and N-2 scores, as measured by the Defining Issues Test 2 (DIT-2), among 33 interns. The case-study method used a pattern matching technique to show congruence between the theoretical patterns of Neo-Kohlbergian theory of moral development and observed patterns of judgement and action among 10 intern cases representing low and high levels of post-conventional reasoning as measured by the DIT-2. (Contains 5 tables, 2 figures, and 7 notes.)
