Baseline Concussion Test
If you or your child play sports, it’s important that a baseline concussion test is taken at the beginning of the athletic season. This simple test can be completed online. Once this baseline test is completed, results will be stored in our records. If you have a head injury or think you have a concussion any time after taking the test, make an appointment with the Carolina Sports Concussion Program within 2-3 days. We will repeat the ImPACT test at the clinic and compare the results with your baseline test results. This will help us manage your recovery from the concussion and guide your return to play. We are able to interpret test results for ages 10 and up. Younger children should not take the test. Adult assistance may be needed for those ages 10 to 17 to get the test started, but there should be no direct supervision or interaction once the test begins.

Before you begin:
  • Write down the following security code: C87B28EB45. The code is case sensitive and
     you will need it to access the test after your payment is received. (You will not be able to access this
     code later.)

  • Choose a testing environment that is quiet and free of distractions.

   • Be sure that you have at least 30 minutes to take the test.

   • Do not use a laptop computer unless you have an external mouse (touchpad controllers will not work).

   • Remember that we will use this test to help treat you if you get a concussion,
     so take the test seriously and try your best.

   • This is a difficult test; do not be discouraged by incorrect answers – just continue to give your best effort.

   • You will need the Adobe Flash Player Plug-in to take the test. Click here to download for free.

   • Please confirm that you have broadband, DSL or high-speed Internet connection before
     taking the ImPACT Test. Using dial up or another unstable Internet connection could affect your results.


   • Disable your pop up blocker setting on your browser if you use one.

   • Chromebooks and the Chrome browser are not supported. Using a Chromebook or Chrome
     for taking assessments may cause issues, such as incomplete screen loading and freezing.
