For this reason, the existence of a tool accurately measuring counseling alliance between counselor and counselee, especially counselee version is necessary. The purpose of this study is to develop and exam psychometric properties of Counseling Alliance Inventory-Counselee version based computer assisted testing (CAI-Ce CAT). This study used instrument development and standardization procedures. This study’s participants of 85 of counselees in Indonesia. Data were collected using questionnaire that is CAI-Ce CAT initial version in the form of Likert five-level scale. Operationally, data analysis was performed by using Rasch Model version 3.75. The results showed that CAI-Ce CAT had satisfying psychometric properties, i.e. item measure, item fit order, DIF, person measure, person fit order, variable maps, rating scale, test reliability, person reliability, and item reliability. Results suggest that the New CAI-Ce CAT can provide efficient and valid assessments of counseling alliance. However, the factor structure still needed to be improved.
