Abstract:Several studies are reviewed that examine differences in moral schema development using techniques intermediate between measuring implicit knowledge (such as with the Defining Issues Test) and explicit knowledge (such as with the Moral Judgment Interview). Findings include significant differences in the comprehension of moral narratives based on age/education and on level of expertise. Also, intended moral themes in stories are not understood by younger children.
