Bruess, Brian J.; Pearson, Frances C.
College Student Affairs Journal, v21 n2 p38-52 Spr 2002
Examines changes in moral reasoning among college students and seeks to determine whether there are gender differences in the process. Women scored higher than men on both Principled moral reasoning and Davison's moral index and graduating students scored higher than first-year students on Davison's moral index. Discusses whether Kohlberg's theory adequately describes women's development of moral reasoning. (Contains 36 references.) (GCP)
