The current study aimed at identifying the differences in moral Judgment levels among female students according to their giftedness and grade levels. In specific, the study attempted to answer the following questions: (1) Does moral judgment differ due to the differences in giftedness and grade levels? (2) Is it possible to efficiently predict the moral judgment levels for female students through non verbal intelligence, creativity, and achievement? A sample of (232) female students has been randomly selected as of (115) from 11th grade and (117) from 8th grade. This was selected from ten schools of the capital district of Kuwait. The moral judgment test, Raven's progressive Matrices, Torrance Tests for Creative Thinking (verbal form), and the student's general average were utilized to answer the research questions. The results revealed that there are statistical significance differences in moral judgment according to the main effects of giftedness and grade level. And it is possible to predict the moral judgment through creativity only. (Contains 5 tables.)
