Abstract

This study presents a review and analysis of how common information technology (IT) unethical actions are viewed by a sample of students, faculty, and practitioners and what moral intensity variables influenced their decision. The findings reveal that all the questionable moral situations were judged with varying levels of opposition. Gender, age, and student status all affected ethical decisions. It was also found that different moral intensity variables had varying influences on moral decisions. Practitioners can use these findings to tailor moral education and training activities. Researchers can further explore the initial findings and refine the varying impact and influences.
