Select and reject controls and their effects over behavior have been studied for decades. Methodological difficulties related to the procedures used to infer the occurrence of these controls are not rare. The present paper review the procedures used to test the occurrence of select and reject controls. Equivalence tests, testing with novel stimuli, tests with blank-comparison, tracking participant's eye movements and the matching-to-sample task with observing requirements (MTS-OR) are here described and evaluated as alternatives to measure the occurrence of these controls. The necessity of developing new procedures to infer and also manipulate the establishment of select and reject controls is suggested. (AU)
