The Moral Reasoning and Scientific Argumentation of Gifted Adolescents.
Tirri, Kirsi; Pehkonen, Leila
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v13 n3 p120-29 Spr 2002
This study explored the moral reasoning and scientific argumentation of 31 Finnish adolescents gifted in science. In qualitative essays and interviews, the pupils were asked to identify moral dilemmas in science and provide solutions to them. Two illustrative cases of students' argumentation who had either average or high scores on the Defining Issues Test show that the students identified different relevant aspects in discussing the same moral dilemma.
