Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC) is recommended as a rapid evaluation of concussion testing tool.

"Recent studies have shown that the use of the SAC has value in helping sports medicine professionals in detecting and quantifying acute cognitive impairment on the sports sideline (3), particularly in identifying concussions in the 90 to 95% of cases where there is no loss of consciousness or other obvious signs of concussion."
