The School Counseling Program Report Card--Student Version is a program evaluation tool designed to capture high school student perceptions of school counseling services. This article describes the initial instrument development process. Exploratory factor analysis (N = 305) yielded a 22-item instrument with three subscales that mirror the ASCA National Model domains. Reliability of subscales ranged from a = 0.89 to 0.91. Expert review and concurrent validity tests demonstrated initial support for the use of this program evaluation instrument to gather process-level data.
