Abstract: 

The authors, researchers at the National University of Ireland and Ulster University, contrived a study that was designed to teach children fraction-decimal stimulus equivalence using the respondent type training procedure and test for any emergent generalization. In experiment 1, subjects were successful on all equivalence tests. In Experiment 2, subjects were successful on all equivalence tests and 50% of subjects successfully completed the final generalization tests. In Experiment 3, subjects were successful on all equivalence tests and on all generalization tests.
