Four studies are reported using both a questionnaire and an intervies focussed on the questionaire items to assess the development of moral autonomy in 120 respondents from 12 tp 21 years of age. The results were intended to extend the analysis of the development of moral autonomy provided by an existing multidimensional model of the development of moral reasoning. Results showed the need to add a dimension of individual difference to the single domension usded to describe autonomey-related changes in the content of judgements. A further dimension, indexing developmental changes in the use of justification types was also identified.It was found that justifications for moral judgements were more theoretical than in a Kohlberg-style interview.
