Pay-Per-Result (PPR)

Pay-Per-Result is a unique, patent-pending payment concept developed by LearnThat Foundation. It offers members performance assurance. Members only pay for measured learning results and enjoy full premium features.

A PPR token is deducted only when a test item was 
(a) previously challenging for the student as demonstrated by providing an incorrect answer, 
(b) added to that student's practice cycle and reviewed over subsequent sessions, and 
(c) successfully removed from the practice list after demonstrating retention.

The criteria established for defining a learning result may vary across LearnThat domains, and is specified in each domain. Within the LearnThatWord domain, for example, a learning result is registered, a learning spark assigned, and a PPR token deducted from the deposit after the user has entered a practice words correctly in three subsequent quizzes.

Performance, study progress, and credit accounting is available on the member, teacher and administrator portals in real-time. 

A learning item that was added to the practice cylce by mistake can be removed after the session during which it was added. This is useful for example if an item registered as an error but the member is confident that the cause was a typo or oversight, not a learning gap. Once the next session has been started, items from the previous sessions can no longer be removed from the practice list, as they have actively entered the practice cycle.

Obviously, each individual is different, and we have no influence over your personal motivation or ability to retain knowledge in the long-term. We ensure that the item has been learned at the time the study cycle completes and are not responsible for future preservation of the knowledge.

Pay-Per-Result allows members or organizations sponsoring them to only invest in actual, measured learning results, while maintaining access to premium features. 

Purchase of PPR tokens

PPR tokens are purchased in bundles, with increasing quantity discounts offered as volume increases. Our current price list is published on the payment page. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are shown in U.S. dollars, and the payment portals utilized are responsible for converting foreign currencies at the applicable and current rate.

PPR tokens can be freely shared among members or organizations. Credits are always purchased by one individual or organization representing the group.

Sponsoring relationships can be reviewed and updated on the "my portal" page. Splitting payment between multiple parties is not supported by the LearnThat payment systems and has to be managed through external processes within the group.

The full responsibility for sharing PPR tokens lies with the sponsoring party. Neither LearnThat Foundation nor the recipient nor any other party can be held responsible if sponsorship is not properly monitored and maintained. Assuming sponsorship includes a risk of unintentional use of PPR tokens. It is the sole responsibility of the sponsor to monitor the sponsorship to make sure credits are used by the intended recipients.

LearnThat Foundation is not responsible for managing any arrangements within the group. We provide real-time reporting that documents the use of credits in minute detail. These reports make it easy to review usage and distribution of credits. 
However, any arrangements or agreements within a group are solely to be managed by the group. We do not assume any responsibility for any issues that may arise from a group purchase.

In addition to payment, we also offer a range of ways to obtain PPR tokens by fundraising for LearnThat Foundation. These PPR tokens care are simply a courtesy given in appreciation of the support provided, and can not be refunded or exchanged for payment. 

Self-Sustaining Philanthropy

Membership and PPR fees, grants and sponsorship fees are used to support our philanthropic campaigns, continually develop and upgrade our program, and follow our nonprofit mission.

Refund

We warrant our programs with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Should you want to return your credits, we will deduct the value of the used credits and refund the remaining amount. For example: You purchased 5,000 credits at $0.10 each. You cancel after using 100 credits. We will deduct $30 (price of 100-credit package) from $500 and refund the rest.

Memberships are an effective alternative for dedicated and high-volume users. If a refund is requested for annual or more long-term memberships, your support agent will calculate the charge for expired time at the current monthly rate and refund the remainder.

Memberships started before the launch of the free tutoring option will be refund on 12/31/2012, based on the process listed in the previous paragraph. Memberships started after 

Organizational licenses are non-refundable.

Cancellation or Expiration

PPR tokens do not expire, and may be donated to the literacy campaign of choice, if you no longer need them.

Memberships automatically expire at the end of the time period purchased.

Only exception: 
The self-renewing membership, either annual or monthly, has to be canceled to avoid repeat charges. This can be easily done by logging into the PayPal platform, clicking on "details" next to the last charge, then clicking on the item ID number under the headline and clicking "cancel subscription" at the bottom of that page. Our friendly agents are glad to assist you, if you have problems with that process.

Pricing

In accordance with standard industry practice LearnThat Foundation reserves the right to offer varying rates for its services to various markets. Where subscriptions or PPR tokens are offered by one of our affiliates, the List Price may be determined by the merchant and may differ from the prices listed on our main site. 
The price you pay will be confirmed in the order process. Please note that we do NOT charge your credit card until after your order has been confirmed.
