The aim the second phase of study was the determination of psychometric properties of translated instrument, including validity and reliability. The validity was determined by face validity method. The first reliability calculation in a 30 student sample was
a=0.72. After correcting the questionnaire, it applied to 220 college students in Tehran. Data was analyzed using t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation and linear regression with SPSS 16.

a=0.74. The mean score of DIT-2 was 43.25±10.11 with a range from 28 to 68. There was significant relationship between age and level of education with the level of moral development. Based on linear regression model study in master’s degree can increase the score by 10.01 in comparison with students in BS degree.
