Baseline Testing: Getting Started
Many local school districts and colleges have incorporated ImPACT™ into their athletic programs. Select your school from the list below to complete the baseline test. Enter the password given to you by the athletic trainer when instructed. If your school or organization is not listed, please select "other organization" from the list.
There is a $10 fee/per athlete to take the baseline test if your school or club has not incorporated ImPACT™ into their program.
ImPACT™ testing is a computerized program that evaluates and documents specific aspects of cognitive function including verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time. The athlete is also asked to report and rate severity of post concussive symptoms.
ImPACT™ testing typically takes between 45 to 60 minutes to complete.
Before taking the test, be sure the athlete is:
- Well rested
- Well hydrated
- Comfortable and alert as possible
The test should be administered in a quiet environment with no distractions such as noise, or interruptions to ensure best performance.
* You will not receive a final score at the end of the test. Your baseline information will be stored for future reference should a concussion occur.
** This is not the post injury test. If you are injured, please contact your athletic trainer or call WellSpan Sports Medicine at (877) 482-5420.
