Zeidler, Dana L.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v22 n5 p461-71 May 1985
Specific modes of formal reasoning and measurements of principled moral reasoning ability were obtained from 99 10th-grade students. Hierarchical relationships were found amoung variables with combinatorial and correlational reasoning accounting for 22 percent of the variance in principled moral reasoning. Theoretical and educational implications are discussed. (Author/DH)
