The tool of the study was an observation card. After applying the tool and analyzing the results of the study, the study reached six standards for evaluating instructional practices. The results revealed that 1) the level of practicing the first, second, third and fifth standards, i.e. the ethical pillar, preparing female pupils for getting knowledge, developing thinking skills and cooperative work, was high; 2) the level of practicing the fourth and sixth standards, i.e. information and communication technology and leadership, was intermediate; 3) the level of practicing the standards as a whole was high but it did not reach the level of precision (80%); and there were no statistically significant differences among the instructional practices of science female teachers due to the scientific qualification and instructional experience variables.
