The purpose of this study is to reveal the perception levels of problem solving skills of elementary school students. The sample of the study is formed by totally 264 elementary students attending to 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade in a big city in Turkey. Data were collected by means of "Perception Scale for Problem Solving Skills" which consists of two sub-dimensions. As a result of the study, the perception level of problem solving skills of elementary school students was high and there was no difference according to their genders. Perception levels of problem solving skills of students show a significant difference according to their grade levels. This difference is due to the fact that 8th grade levels are lower scores than other grades. At the same time, there is a similar and significant relationship between students' perception scores for problem-solving skills and the sub-dimension "Perceived willingness and commitment towards problem solving skills" scores.
