Abstract: This study was designed to investigate the relationship of cognitive development and moral development; the differences and similarities between prospective elementary teachers and prospective secondary teachers in stages of cognitive development and moral development; as well as the relations between levels of cognitive and moral development and chronological age, experiences in mathematics, experiences in science, grade point average, and SAT scores. Forty-three prospective elementary teachers and 32 prospective secondary teachers were administered Piagetian cognitive and Kohlbergian moral dilemma tests in order to determine their levels of cognitive development and moral development, respectively. The Piagetian type test consisted of a proportional test and quantification of probabilities test. The data obtained were analyzed, by computer, using the t-statistic and Pearson-Product-Moment correlation coefficients.
