The Structure and Measurement of the Moral Elevation
The present study aims to explore the psychological structure of moral elevation in Chinese back-ground. Based on analysis of the related theories and the previous researches on moral elevation, we constructed a theoretical model of moral elevation structure, and then compiled moral elevation items based on open interviews and experts’ revise. The sample 1 (283 college students) and the sample 2 (220 college students) were surveyed to examine the validity and reliability of the scale, by the exploratory and confirmatory analysis. The findings showed that: 1) the psychological structure of moral elevation includes four factors: emotion and outpouring, cognition for own, cognition for others, behavior intention; 2) the self-made Chinese version of moral elevation scale for university students has good reliability, validity and applicability.
