ImPACT Baseline Test Instructions
ImPACT is a computer-based neurocognitive testing tool used in the management of mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI), more commonly known as concussions. You are being asked to take a baseline test, so that in the event you sustain a concussion or an injury with a mechanism that suggests a concussion, we may be able to evaluate and assess the severity of the injury and the progress of your recovery.
It is in your best interest to produce an honest effort in taking this baseline test, such that we have a valid baseline scores against which to measure in the event of a head injury. If you do poorly or produce a test with invalid results, you will be asked to retake the test in a supervised environment.
Use a computer with stable internet access.
Use an external mouse. Touchpads, trackpads and nub pointers will produce invalid results.
Allow 30-45 minutes of quiet and uninterrupted time to take this test. Computers located in a room that the door can be closed and external noise limited is ideal.
Be sure that you are well-rested, and that you had a good night’s sleep the night before taking this test
Read the directions given by the test before proceeding into each section.
