Abstract:

Prior to this research, teaching ethics as a science was without precedent in the literature. The results of the research were potentially profound findings supported the hypothesis that learning valuemetrics could increase the value judgement capability of university ROTC students when compared to philosophic based ethics instruction. If the findings could be replicated, valuemetrics could impact leadership training. The replication research, conducted between November 1988 and March 1989, used university Army ROTC students as an experimental group and Air Command and Staff College officers as the control group. Findings supported the conclusions in the original research and further suggested that the learning that took place in the experimental group was indeed real. Keywords Value judgement, Ethics, Psychology.
