Private Testing

This option is administered by companies that provide standardized test services, such as those for professional certifications. This is the most flexible as you pick what works best in your schedule based on the list of available openings from the company.

This is currently the only testing option in Minnesota. There are five locations around the state shown on the map to the right.

Local Proctored Testing

Our proctors are members who received training and certification to administer the Mensa admission tests. Testing sessions include a group of applicants in the same room. Note that tests are evaluated by American Mensa; proctors do not score your test or know your result.
