AbstractThe authors of this article describe an assessment method that can be used to measure the effectiveness of ethics education courses or training programs in the areas of science and engineering. The Engineering and Science Issues Test (ESIT) measures moral judgement in a similar way as the second edition Defining Issues Test (DIT). The article describes the development of this test and the authors' use of the test in measuring the effectiveness of stand-alone ethics classes taught at Georgia Tech.
