HOW WE CALCULATED OUR PASS RATE:
We sampled 500 Random PASStheBIGABAEXAM students who participated in our 5-Week Workshop in 2016. (4 total cohorts)
Using a random number generator (random.org) we were able to generate a random sample of 500 students from the total number of people who participated in a PASStheBIGABAEXAM 5-Week Workshop in 2016.
For each of the Random 500 students we searched for their passing status using the Certificant Registry on the BACB® website.
Students not found on the Certificant Registry as passing were sent survey emails via Survey Monkey to ascertain pass/fail status and first-time test taker or re-taker status. This helped us account for name changes or name misspellings.
Of those students that responded to our Survey Monkey email, we added their data into our pass rate calculation. For any non-responses we counted the student as not passing.
Additionally, for the 500-person sample, we analyzed which cohort month a student tested, based on when they took our workshop as well as if they were a first time tester or a re-tester.
Of the randomly selected 500 students, 83% (414) passed the exam after taking the PTB 5-Week Workshop. 254 of these students were first time exam takers. Of those 254 students, 89% (226) passed. 246 of the randomly selected students were exam re-takers. Of those 246, 76% (188) passed.
