IMPACT TESTING IS ONLY FOR HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES
Testing will take place at Zeeland EAST in room 117.
**Testing sessions are subject to cancellation due to low numbers.**
Who needs to take this?
All incoming freshmen, new or transfer students, juniors or anyone who did not take a baseline test during the 2017-2018 or 2018-2019 academic years. If you are unsure if you need to take the test please contact your athletic trainer below.
What is this for?
The ImPACT test is a baseline test of cognitive brain function that will be used if an athlete sustains a concussion to help determine if any brain function is impaired.
I took this test 2 years ago so why do I need to take it again?
Adolescent brains develop at such a quick rate, it is recommended that athletes be tested every 2 years to ensure that the baseline test reflects how your brain is currently functioning.
How long will the test take and do I need to bring anything?
The test will take about 60 minutes start to finish. Parents are asked not to stay for the test and students do not need to bring anything with you.
Where is Room 117 at East?
Room 117 is in the main hallway just North of the rotunda, across from the library.
Please be sure to choose a date and time. Testing sessions are subject to change if we don't have 10 sign-ups for a particular day and time.
