Students Participate in Concussion Testing

Students in grades 7, 9 and 11 are currently being administered the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) test. ImPACT’s test is computerized and is being administered during students’ physical education class.

The test provides a baseline report for each student. If a concussion is suspected, the baseline report will serve as a comparison to a repeat ImPACT test, which professionals can use to assess potential changes or damage caused by a concussion. Baseline tests are suggested every two years. The test is administered by the physical education teachers and Assistant Principal Chris Rockwell in the computer room. This test is not mandatory for students.

The IMPACT program measures player symptoms, verbal and visual memory, processing speed and reaction time, assists clinicians and athletic trainers in making difficult return-to-play decisions, provides reliable baseline test information and produces a comprehensive report of test results. Learn more about the ImPACT test.
