Baseline Concussion Testing for Athletes: 

Montgomery County Public Schools implemented Baseline Concussion testing for all athletes during the 2013-14 School Year.  Athletes need to have this test done every two years while they are attending a MCPS high school.  The test is a pre-season exam conducted in the computer labs in the school that takes approximately 30 - 40 minutes to complete.  Areas such as learning and memory skills, ability to concentrate and problem solving skills are tested.  In the event that the athlete suffers a concussion, the results from these tests can be used in comparison with similar post-injury tests.


To schedule your baseline test, email the athletic director, Joe Doody at
