HESI™ Comparison Report


You can access the HESI Comparison report from the Report App under the Impact - Benchmarking folder. The report includes a scatterplot comparing all HESI institutions based on percentile rankings in course access and efficiency.

The report also includes individual capacity and course offering metrics for your school and compares them to the averages of all institutions in the HESI database, schools of the same Carnegie classification, and schools of the same institution type.


Course Access and Efficiency Quadrant

The Course Access and Efficiency Quadrant demonstrates the opportunity to balance students’ course access with campus efficiency. Success in these areas is frequently inversely correlated (e.g. efficient institutions tend to have less course access, and vice versa). All institutions in the HESI are mapped (with your institution being highlighted) with the top-right quadrant of this graph representing institutions where both student course access and campus efficiency performance are both better than industry averages. The dots are colored-coded to indicate schools that are of the same institution type and Carnegie classification.

The efficiency score is the percentile rank based on an institution’s enrollment ratio, classroom standard week utilization, and underutilized course ratio.

The course access score is the percentile rank based on an institution’s overloaded course ratio, off-grid waste, primetime compression, and single section courses.



Capacity Metrics and Course Offering Metrics

The Capacity and Course Offering Metrics widgets display the individual HESI™ metrics for your institution. The large number indicates the current value and what the percentile ranking your institution is for that metric amongst all HESI institutions. Additionally, the included bar chart will show the average metric value for all institutions in the HESI database, institutions that match your Carnegie classification, and institutions that match your institution type (institution types include Private not for profit 4-year, Private for-profit 4-year, Public 4-year, Public 2-year, International, and Administrative).
