Counseling professional bodies such as the American Counseling Association (2014) have recognized that the client's religiosity and spirituality need to be taken into consideration in counseling sessions so that counseling interventions can be implemented more effectively. Students in higher learning institutions face various issues that require comprehensive and holistic interventions including religiosity approach. The need to understand one’s level of religiosity through assessment is necessary so that appropriate improvements can be made. The existing measures of religiosity characteristics among Muslim students that can be used in counseling sessions are currently limited and cannot help clients perform a comprehensive assessment of their religiosity. This study aimed to develop the Mutadayyin Inventory that can be used as a religiosity inventory in counseling sessions, and as a tool for self reflection. The development is based on the term Mutadayyin (religious people) suggested by al-Shahrastani that refers to Gabriel's hadith and the result of experts’ interviews. The study employs a mixed method study namely the exploratory sequential design. It starts with qualitative phase then followed by the quantitative phase. The development integrates Religiosity Measurement Principles and Muslim Personality Model proposed by Jamiah et al., (2013). Four main constructs and twelve sub constructs are used in the development of this inventory. The inventory also incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) by Kennerly (2017) to enable religiosity to be assessed according to the client's cognitive, emotion, and behavior. A pilot study was performed on 401 students from a public university. From the original 180 items only 115 items were retained for the final study. Based on the findings using the Rasch Measurement Model, five Likert scales were mapped and transformed into four scales. The final study involved 1198 students from 19 public universities. The results of the study dropped 7 more items making the total number of final items at 108. Mutadayyin Inventory exhibits good construct validity and able to achieve unidimensionality. Scale analysis also shows students' comprehension of the scales provided. Person and item reliability are also very high and Mutadayyin level is at a low logit scale level. This test tool is expected to be utilized in counseling and guidance sessions. Furthermore, it can be used as a self-introspection tool as well as a potent tool for personal development.
