Mensa test­ing

Dayton Daily News - - LOCALFOCUS - STAFF RE­PORT

Day­ton Area Mensa, the lo­cal chap­ter of the in­ter­na­tional high IQ so­ci­ety Mensa, will hold ad­mis­sion test­ing ses­sions on Satur­day’s, Feb. 23, March 30 and April 27, from 10 a.m. – noon, at the Ket­ter­ing-Mo­raine Pub­lic Li­brary, group study room, 3496 Far Hills Ave.

To pre-reg­is­ter or for ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the Test­ing Co­or­di­na­tor, test­[email protected]­ton.us.mensa.org or 937-546-7885. Pre-reg­is­tra­tion is strongly en­cour­aged. Walk-ins will be ac­com­mo­dated as long as test­ing ma­te­ri­als and seats are avail­able. Pre-reg­is­trants will have pri­or­ity.

Test tak­ers should ar­rive about 15-20 min­utes prior to test­ing to com­plete reg­is­tra­tion. Late ar­rivals can­not be ac­com­mo­dated once test­ing has started. Each test taker must have a photo ID and the $60 test eval­u­a­tion fee, which is charged by the na­tional Mensa of­fice to cover ex­penses of the test­ing pro­gram in­clud­ing pur­chas­ing the right to use the copy­righted tests. Those who score in the top 2 per­cent of the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion on ei­ther of two tests of logic and de­duc­tive rea­son­ing are el­i­gi­ble for Mensa mem­ber­ship. The test is open to any­one 14 and older, but parental per­mis­sion is re­quired for those ages 14-17. Ap­pli­cants of any age can also use prior ev­i­dence from a wide va­ri­ety of other stan­dard­ized IQ tests to qual­ify.

A cul­ture-fair, lan­guage-neu­tral, un­timed test is avail­able by ap­point­ment for those whose first lan­guage is not English and those who have trou­ble with timed tests. If this would ap­ply to you, con­tact Day­ton Area Mensa for an ap­point­ment at www.day­ton.us.mensa.org.
