Abstract: Moral judgement in the professions has received increasing attention by researchers and practitioners across various industries. A new instrument, the Construction-specific Moral Judgement Test (CMT), is being developed to assess the moral judgement of construction professionals dealing with the myriad of ethical dilemmas likely to be faced in professional practices. ‘Intermediate concepts’ (ICs) of the neo-Kohlbergian model have been adopted as the framework to develop the CMT. This paper reports the design and development of the CMT which uses case-study scenarios specific to the construction field. The expert panels are being invited to evaluate the ICs scenarios and develop the scoring key. The reliability and validity of the instrument will be assessed in a sample of practitioners in the construction industry. It is expected that the outcome of this study can provide rich insights about how construction professionals make decisions and their cognitive moral capacity.
