Analog quantum simulation is expected to be an important application of near-term quantum devices. Verification of these devices without comparison to known simulation results will be an important task as the system size grows beyond the classically-simulable regime. We introduce a set of experimentally-motivated benchmarking protocols for analog quantum simulators that are sensitive to a variety of error sources and are scalable to larger system sizes. We discuss the demonstration of these protocols on a two-site Ising model implemented in a trapped-ion device and on a numerically-simulated five-site Heisenberg model.
