The Counselor-Trainee Progress Assessment (CTPA) is a rating instrument used by faculty to observe and evaluate the counseling skills of Master's degree students in the Counseling program at Missouri State University. This project involved an exploratory factor analysis and examination of internal consistency to refine and validate this instrument and underscore and improve the value of its feedback to trainees. The project examined how the CTPA's structure correlates with demographic data of trainees to learn how certain characteristics related to emergent factors within the CTPA. The CTPA was found to have a stable three factor structure and displayed high internal consistency.
