This paper reviews current approaches found in the engineering education literature to assess ethics instruction outcomes. Based on theoretical grounds, we believe that existing approaches are incomplete for use in an ethical framework appropriate for humanitarian engineering, i.e., one that includes not only an ethics of justice, but also an ethics of care. The paper describes an ongoing mixed-methods research study that seeks to assess this broader conception of ethics, and then focuses on one aspect of the study design: a self-report survey instrument adapted from the field of positive psychology.
