Counselor education researchers are in need of developing new instruments to measure psychological constructs, or evaluating and validating the available instruments to reduce measurement errors. The aim of this presentation is to provide guidance for developing and evaluating measurement instruments which have desirable reliability and validity properties. The necessary steps of scale development are discussed.  By using exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, and the data collected from two samples (N > 500 each), the presenter illustrates the best practices and approaches in the initial instrument development and validation process.  Examples from the presenter's dissertation research are used to illustrate the steps taken in the process.
