How is an enduring material activity defined?

An enduring material is a printed, recorded, or computer-presented activity that may be used over time at various locations and which, in itself, constitutes a planned activity. In an enduring material the provider creates the content.

Enduring materials should be reported in PARS for each year in which they are active, either for the entire year or any part thereof. For each year that you provided the activity, please report the number of learners who participated in it during that year, as well as the income and expense related to the activity for that year.  Do not report cumulative data for an activity spanning multiple years.

When reporting the number of learners for an enduring material activity, you should count all learners who completed all or a portion of the activity and whose participation can be verified in some manner.  The accreditor would not consider individuals that only received the enduring material activity but did not actually complete all or a portion of it to be learners.
