This paper, presented at the 2016 AERA Annual Meeting, describes the development of two products to facilitate measurement of the extent to which classroom instruction aligns with the Framework for K–12 Science Education and the subsequently released Next Generation Science Standards, particularly the science practices. The first product is a primer that operationalizes the science practices for different grade levels and content areas. The second product is a selected-response survey for measuring how often teachers implement the practices in their science instruction.
