Bruggeman, Elizabeth Leistler; Hart, Kathleen J.
Journal of Educational Research, v89 n6 p340-44 Jul-Aug 1996
The incidence of cheating and lying on an experimental measure was examined from a sample of high school students who attended either a religious (Catholic) or a secular (public) school. Student surveys indicated that the groups were similar in moral reasoning level and in lying and cheating behavior. Level of moral reasoning was not correlated with behavior. (SM)
