the context is as follows

...or complex moment where ethical reasoning skill will be put to bare where they will have opportunity to discuss online their reactions to that particular film...

First, what does "put to bare" mean?

Second, why do they need to put to bare ethical reasoning skill

  • It looks like a mistake to me. It was good of you to give us context, but can you give us even more? It might be a technical term. – stangdon Aug 29 '18 at 14:46

It means something will be revealed. bare is like exposed, if something can be clearly seen. So instead of put to bare you could also say their skill will be revealed. The sentence is describing a complex moment, that will show the ethical reasoning skill of someone.

  • That's an interesting interpretation, but "put to bare" is not idiomatic or grammatically correct. – stangdon Aug 30 '18 at 21:22
  • It is not? Thank you for that comment, I thought I heard it several times in english. – Bernhard Aug 31 '18 at 4:58
