Sample of the research consisted of 34 specialists who have some certain criteria. A survey form to determine how Performance Indicators could be measured was used as data collection tool. Percentage and frequencies were used in data analysis. As a result of research, a majority of teaching professionals participating in the study has stated that the performance indicators designated for personality traits standard area could be measured via personality tests, interviews and teacher observation reports. While interviews and interest inventory were considered as significant in measuring the performance indicators designated for the interest standard area, psychological tests came into prominence in the health standard area. The most prominent implementation in measuring the performance indicators for the field knowledge standard area, however, was that of achievement tests. Other prominent alternative implementations were interviews in the intellectual level standard area, and teacher observation reports in the attitude, skills and technology standard areas, respectively.
