Bredemeier, B.J., Weiss, M.R., Shields, D.L., & Shewchuck, R.M.
Journal of Moral Education, 15.3 (1986) 212-220

Purpose:
Examine if moral development can be a feasible goal in a sport program.

Sample:
84 predominately white, middle and upper middle class children age 5-13, (45 male, 39 female), attending a summer, day, sports camp. Subjects randomly assigned to one of three groups: social learning, structural development or control.

Methods/Instruments:
Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT), Piagetian Intentionality Task (PIT), Distributive Justice Scale (DJS)

Results:

  • Significant pre- to post- test increase on moral measure scores within experimental groups.
  • Between group moral measure scores changes not significant
  • No significant change in control group.
  • Results suggest social learning and social development strategies for moral growth is more effective than physical education procedures alone.
