The study aims to determine whether the problem-solving skill levels of students studying at the faculty of sports sciences differ according to some variables. The model of the research is descriptive, one of the quantitative research methods. The research group consists of 185 students (Mean age = 21.42 ± 2.45) studying at the faculty of sports sciences. The "Problem Solving Inventory" and "Personal Information Form" developed by the researcher to determine the personal characteristics of the students were used as data collection tools. Seven types of problem-solving scores are obtained with the scale, including the total problem solving and its sub-dimensions: impetuous approach, considering approach, avoidant approach, evaluative approach, self-confident approach and planned approach. As a result of the Skewness-Kurtosis technique performed to determine whether the measurements were suitable for normal distribution, it was understood that all dimensions showed normal distribution. X̄, S and t-Test, One-Way ANOVA analysis of variance and Bonferroni test were used to determine the source of the difference. It was determined that the students participating in the study have above the middle level of the problem-solving skills and its sub dimensions, but they have below the mid-level of the impetuous approach from the problem-solving sub-dimensions. It was concluded that there was a statistically significant difference in terms of gender, age and class variables of the participants according to their personal characteristics, while there was no statistically significant difference in terms of the duration of doing sports and having difficulty in evaluating their leisure time.
