HESI® Room Utilization Analysis Drill-In


The HESI® Room Utilization Analysis Drill-In report displays the HESI details as they relate to room utilization within your institution’s prime week and standard week.

There are many ways to filter and slice the data to see how rooms are being used on a high level for the entire institution using several sorting options and a more granular level in places using drill-in capabilities.

The use of this report requires a HESI analysis for your institution.



Once you have a HESI analysis completed, you can access this report from the HESI Comparison or the HESI Goals Report in the Report App by clicking on the Standard Week Utilization, Prime Week Utilization, or Primetime Compression metrics. 




Prior to reviewing the metrics, select the Capacity Analysis term corresponding to the term you wish to analyze. The default selection for your institution's main campus and classroom/lecture room type will be pre-selected upon opening the report, but you can turn this off.

To manipulate the selection further you can update the filters to "Include All" or both true and false values. This will allow the dependent filters to include all possible values to be available for selection
