Here is a chance for you to sharpen your moral intuitions, refine your moral consciences, and calibrate your "moral compass." As stated in this week's Introduction, you face moral decisions on a daily basis. However, those everyday situations might not force you to stop and think critically about your moral reasoning. In the first part of this Application assignment you are asked to complete a morality quiz that presents you with complex moral decision scenarios. This quiz has no right or wrong answers, but at the end of the activity you will receive an analysis of your moral framework. Pay close attention to your moral reasoning at each scenario as you choose your answers, and study the analysis at the end of the quiz. It is designed to give you an insight into your value system and help you create a more refined and accurate compass.
