Midview Local School's Athletic Director Dan May and Cleveland Clinic Certified Athletic Trainer Cody Florian have announced the expectation that all Midview High School student-athletes will set a new Concussion Baseline prior to their respective 2020-21 season.
Due to the Coronavirus, the Baseline Concussion Testing date, which annually takes place on campus in May, has been canceled. All testing will be done via the online ImPACT test. Only one baseline test per year is needed for multi-sport athletes.
We strongly encourage all potential student-athletes to utilize their time at home to take this test. Any fall athlete not completing it at home will need to do it in August.
Instructions for Taking the ImPACT Test
(Use a computer with a hand held mouse/Track Pad and Google Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer)
ImPACT cannot be administrated using an IPad/Phone of any kind!!

• Follow the rest of the prompts, answering all questions HONESTLY and trying your best at the test.
• When the test is complete and you get to the page that says “Print Confirmation,” click the X in the upper right corner to close the test. You do not need to print confirmation.
• If you are connecting to the internet via Wi-Fi it must be a consistent connection. Any interruption in connection will cause a fail.

• When it asks for number of years of education completed, freshmen will answer 8, sophomores 9, juniors 10, and seniors 11.
• Current level of participation will be “high school”
• Years of experience at this level will be 0 for freshmen, 1 for sophomore if they played as a freshman, 2 for a junior who played their freshman and sophomore years, etc.
• When it asks for current symptoms, 1 will be least severe and 6 is greatest. If you feel normal you should put “not experiencing.”
ImPACT is a 20-30 minute computer test developed to help sports-medicine clinicians evaluate multiple aspects of neurocognitive functioning following concussion. You are taking a baseline test. In the event you suffer a head injury, we may use this as a tool in deciding when it is safe for you to return to your sport.
