Information about Registered Behavior Technician Examination Results

Notification Information:

Candidates are notified of their results at the testing site as soon as the examination is completed. Results are confirmed by the BACB via email and in the candidate’s BACB Gateway account within about one week.

Scoring Information:

Every BACB examination undergoes psychometric statistical equating to assure that scores on different examination forms are adjusted for differing levels of difficulty. Therefore, the actual number of correctly answered items required to pass each examination form may vary depending on the level of difficulty of that examination form. Thus, because the passing score may vary from one examination form to another, passing candidates receive only notice that they have passed the examination and no score is provided. Candidates who do not pass the examination are provided with a scaled score and information about the tasks for which they answered items incorrectly.

Examination content may not be appealed.

Administration Data:

The following administration-specific information is shown in the graphs below: the number of candidates for the examination and the percentage that passed. Other examination-related statistical information will not be available.
