Many of us believe teaching ethics is important, but how do we know if we are making progress? The ARBC instrument (Action Research into Business Conduct) provides a measuring tool that can be used to diagnose current levels of perceptions about ethics, or used as a pretest / posttest evaluation of whether ethics instruction is effective. ARBC is a free online tool, created at the University of North Georgia that can support action research efforts to improve ethics instruction. The scenarios it asks participants to evaluate are drawn from common everyday situations that may have ethical implications. ARBC can be useful in contexts beyond business courses, for example in confirming assurance of learning measurements of progress towards ethics awareness goals.
This session will illustrate how to use ARBC in ethics assessment, and provide examples of ongoing research that is being conducted using ARBC.
