To date, the research shows that unless teachers are explicitly taught to do so, they do not typically provide units that are complete operants (Greenwood et 30 2. , 1994; Greer, 1994a; Madsen, Becker, & Thomas, 1968). That is, they do not carry out learn units. New discriminative stimulus control for the student is unlikely when learn units are not present (Diamond, 1992; Greenwood, Delquardri, & Hall, 1989; Greer, 1994a; Heward, 1994; Ingham & Greer, 1992; Kirby & Shields, 1972). The presence or absence of learn units can be observed in any instructional setting.
