The Relationship between Moral Decision Making and Patterns of Consolidation and Transition in Moral Judgment Development.
Thoma, Stephen J.; Rest, James R.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n2 p323-34 Mar 1999
Assessed the relationship between a measure of consolidation and transition in moral-judgment development and utility of moral concepts in sociomoral decision making in multiple cross-sectional and longitudinal samples. Found that participants' reliance on a Kohlbergian moral framework was highest during periods of consolidation and lowest during transitions. Moral stage information had higher utility during consolidation periods. (Author/KB)
