Spring 2016 ImPACT Testing Sessions
If you are planning to play a Spring sport during the 2016-2017 school year please be sure to complete your ImPACT baseline test prior to the start of that sport. A baseline test is required for all freshmen, juniors, new students or anyone who did not test during the 2015-2016 school year at Zeeland.
March 8 (Wednesday) @ East in Room 118: 4:00pm (Testing session is currently FULL)
March 9 (Thursday) @ West in Room E-130: 4:00pm
Who needs to take this?
Any athlete who has not yet taken the test for the 2015-2016 school year, except those who took the test last year. If you have questions please contact your athletic trainer or the athletic office.
What is this for?
The ImPACT test is a baseline test of 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?
Because brains in high school develop at such a quick rate it is recommended that athletes be tested every 2 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 45 minutes start to finish. Parents to do NOT need to stay for the test and you do not need to bring anything with you.
If I go to East do I need to take the test at East?
No, all testing is done at West High School due to a larger availability of computer labs. During the test, each student will enter his or her school’s code to indicated which school they attend.
Where is Room 118 at East?
Room 118 is located in the circle hall to the northeast of the Rotunda.
Where is room E-130 at West?
Room E-130 is located in the E2 Wing at West High School just past the Dux Pond (School Store).
Please be sure to choose a date and time. Testing sessions are subject to change if we don’t have any sign-ups for that particular day and time.
