This study aimed to determine the relationship between routine/non-routine problem-solving achievements and self-regulation skills of seventh-grade students who are educated in Turkey. For this purpose, in the 2016-2017 academic year, 133 seventh-grade students who were randomly selected in Denizli and Bursa provinces were studied. In the scope of the study, students were asked to answer routine/non-routine problem-solving tests, prepared by the researchers and the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ). When the data obtained from the analysis were examined, it was explained that the seventh-grade students attending the study need to develop their routine problem-solving skills and focus more on non-routine problem-solving skill development. Also, it was concluded that there are low-level and positive relationships between students’ routine problem-solving and self-regulation skills, and non-routine problem-solving and self-regulation skills.
