Information about Registered Behavior Technician Exam Results

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

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

Exam content may not be appealed.

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