Moral Identity in Adolescence

Amani Faisal Qashmer


This paper describes a study performed to conceptualize moral identity development among Jordanian adolescents, and to test for age and gender differences. Data came from four local schools sample (N: 321; 10–15 years of age) of adolescents. All variables were self-report. The measure was the Moral Identity Scale by Aquino and Reed (2002), which showed good reliability, and validity. Moral identity was unrelated to age and gender. The involvement in school activities was not related to moral identity. Recommendations and implications of future research were discussed.

Keywords: moral identity, adolescents in Jordan.
