Applying skills, analytical skills, evaluative skills, and creative skills are among the four elements of HOTS tested. The analysis showed that positive significant relationship (r = 0.194) exists between the two variables and the regression equation is an average grade point = 46.442 + 4.349 Learning Strategies. Thus, through correlation and regression analysis, significant regression model between HOTS and Learning Strategies were found.
