HESI® Seat Fill Utilization Analysis Drill-In


The HESI® Seat Fill Utilization Analysis Drill In report displays HESI details as they relate to how a room’s available capacity is being used as section meetings are scheduled into them and as students enroll in those section meetings.

There are many ways to slice this data, using both room and section meeting attributes. Additionally, there are drill-in capabilities in order to view the calculations in a more granular way to identify issues and better understand what is affecting top-level calculations.

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 Seat Fill Enrollment or Seat Fill Enrollment Cap 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.
