Observation, communication, team working, judgment, and decision making are important teaches reflective thinking skills that are required for teachers if they want to be reflective thinker. This paper proposes two instruments which are Reflective Thinking Open-Ended Questionnaire and Interview Questionnaire to measure teachers' reflective thinking skills. The Reflective Thinking Open-Ended Questionnaire allows teachers to answer the questions in their own words in explaining the meaning of reflective thinking and understanding the gaps if there are between teachers' reflective thinking skills and the reflective thinking skills that they need in their teaching. The Interview Questionnaire is used to support depth understanding the skills that teachers use in their teaching. Measuring teachers' reflective thinking skills by these instrument help to identify teachers' reflective thinking weakness and strength and find the ways for improving their reflecting thinking
