The research aims to examine the changes in the numerical, verbal and technology intensive problem solving (TIPS) scores of adults according to the data of the PIAAC application implemented in 2016 and to examine the predictions of TIPS skills by other skill scores. The PIAAC aims to provide an overview of the “basic information processing skills in of adults aged 16-65. The focus is on verbal skills, numerical skills and problem-solving skills in technology-intensive environments. As a result of the analyzes, t test was conducted to determine whether there is a difference between the numerical skill scores, verbal skill scores and TIPS skill scores of the individuals according to gender and it was seen that numerical skill scores and verbal skill scores showed significant differences according to gender. However, there was no significant difference between TIPS skill scores according to gender. TIPS skill scores, it was seen that the interaction of the individuals with the computer was made by asking and the individuals who did not want and did not know the use were not involved in the application. It is also among the results that the TIPS skills scores are predicted by verbal and numerical skill scores and the increase in numerical and verbal skill scores leads to an increase in TIPS skill scores. It can be interpreted that the change in TIPS skills by age and the high relationship between other skill scores may also be related to the education process. In addition, the distribution of TIPS skill scores according to the educational status of the individuals was examined and it was observed that there were significant differences in the educational status of the three groups.
