ImPACT Testing Signup


2019-2020 Baseline ImPACT Testing Sign-up

All prospective 2019-2020 student athletes who do not have a current, valid baseline ImPACT test should click the link below to sign up for and attend a testing session.  A current baseline test is one that has been completed in the last two academic years beginning in high school. All incoming 2019-2020 freshmen, new or transfer students will need to sign up and test. All 2019-2020 juniors and anyone who does not have a current test will also need to sign up and test. 

Parents can check on the status of their child's baseline ImPACT test by logging into their parent account on FinalForms. From there you can click on Profile under each of your student-athlete's names and scroll down to Concussion Test History. A current test will appear aas a green box with a number and clock symbol. This number indicates the number of days until this test expires. You may also hover over the number with your cursor and it will display the exact date the test will expire. Any tests that appear with a red or yellow number means the test is either currently expired or will soon expire. A student-athlete must have a test with a green number to be eligible to participate at the start of the 2019-2020 athletic sports season. Those student-athletes with no test history are those without any record on file (e.g., all 2019-2020 freshmen). If your 2019-2020 high school student-athlete does not have a test with a green icon, they will need to signup for and attend a baseline ImPACT testing session.

FAQ’s

What is the baseline ImPACT test for?
The baseline ImPACT test is an individualized analysis of a student-athlete;s neurocognitive brain function in a healthy state. In the event that a student-athlete sustains a head injury, this analysis will be used as a normal, baseline value to compare to the post-injury test value to help determine which, if any, neurocognitive functions are impaired by the injury. The ImPACT test is not considered a diagnostic tool, but is used in the evaluation and management process for concussions. 

Why is the baseline test only valid for two years?
Because brains in high school develop at such a quick rate it is recommended that athletes be tested every two years to ensure that the baseline test reflects where the brain is currently functioning.

How long will the test take and do I need to bring anything?
The test will take about one hour start to finish. However the test itself is only about 20-30 minutes long. The rest of the time is spent familiarizing student-athletes with concussion information, as well as general athletic training information. Student-athletes are required to attend the session in its entirety, or they will not be allowed to test. Parents to do NOT need to stay for the test and you do not need to bring anything with you.

Where is room 117 at East?
