The relationship between ethical sensitivity, high ability and gender in higher education students

The relationship between ethical sensitivity, high ability and gender in higher education students

Samenvatting

This study examined the ethical sensitivity of high-ability undergraduate students (n=731) in the Netherlands who completed the 28-item Ethical Sensitivity Scale Questionnaire (ESSQ) developed by Tirri & Nokelainen (2007; 2011). The ESSQ is based on Narvaez' (2001) operationalization of ethical sensitivity in seven dimensions. The following research question was explored and subjected to a Mann-Whitney U Test: Are there any differences in ethical sensitivity between (1) academically average and high-ability students, and (2) male and female students? The self-assessed ethical sensitivity of high-ability students was higher than that of their average-ability peers. Furthermore, female students scored higher on 'taking the perspectives of others'. These results imply that programs for high-ability students incorporating ethical issues could build upon characteristics of this group.
