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.
