What is ImPACT Testing?
ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is a validated computerized concussion evaluation system. The test assists in tracking recovery of cognitive processes after an athlete receives a head injury. The test helps us establish the athlete's normal cognitive functioning that can be later used to compare to post-concussion testing.
All Shelton athletes are required to take the ImPACT baseline testing. To be in compliance with the Shelton Charger Athletic Handbook, athletes in the 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grades must take the test, even if the test was taken the previous year. Also, if an athlete is new to Shelton or Shelton Athletics in any grade, the ImPACT test must be taken.Again, in some cases, athletes might have to take the test two years in a row if they are new to Shelton or Shelton Athletics.
There are no on-campus or off-campus testing sessions at the Testing Center going on at this time.
