Abstract: Despite a lot of studies existing in the literature about TPACK, it is still not obvious how to do TPACK measurement. However, when the studies investigating measurements are reviewed, it is seen that measurements are considered in informational aspect, and applications are held in only TK aspect or limited in TPC and TCK components. In this study, it is aimed to examine the differences and relationships between measurement instruments by focusing on TPACK measurements. Another goal of the study is to give an insight on how TPACK measurements should be realized. In the research, 213 teachers from different fields working in Turkey have participated and study is designed in Descriptive Survey Model. Three different tools were used in order to collect data. The results showed a meaningful relationship between individuals’ statements tools, but no meaningful relationship between individuals’ statements and performance tools. As a result of the study, many measurement instruments which measure participants’ TPACK measurements have been concluded that they do not actually measure TPACK. Apart from that, it has been found out that the teachers have difficulty in providing technology integration in education and the most important reason of this situation is that the teachers cannot manage to put technological knowledge content into practice.
