Repeat baseline testing scores from one collegiate Division I NCAA school were analyzed to determine the necessity of this practice. ImPACT tests were taken between 13 and 40 months apart (median 24 months; final N = 67). No significant difference in any test composite score was obtained; the number of tests exceeding chance levels of change was insignificant. The results do not support the recommendation for repeating baseline testing in college athletes; replication is recommended.
