Auto Analysis and PhraseGen Overview


Demonstrates the workflow of Bongo's Auto Analysis feature, and explains how Evaluators can view the reports for their Learners. Depending on the organization’s membership with Bongo, this may be a premium feature. 

About Auto Analysis

Auto Analysis is a feature that uses Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) to provide deeper insight into an individual’s performance and progress. By generating metrics like rate of speech, speech clarity, and use of filler words, Auto Analysis gives the presenter a better sense of what to focus on and helps the evaluator provide more targeted feedback. Additionally, Auto Analysis can be configured to analyze the content of a learner's video by identifying if key, desired terms or phrases were included, or if the learner said anything they were supposed to avoid.

Auto Analysis is available for Individual Project assignments, Group Projects, and Question & Answer assignments. It works with the following spoken languages: English, Dutch, French, Canadian French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. 

Value Points

  • Encourages Repeated Practice—Individuals can view their analysis before submitting an Individual Assignment, giving them a chance to continuously self-assess, practice, and improve.
  • Enhances Review Process—Auto Analysis helps evaluators identify potential problem areas faster and provides metrics that can serve as an additional layer of assessment.
  • Enables Better Feedback—Evaluators can use data from the auto-generated report to make their feedback more targeted and actionable.
  • Builds Critical Skills—The Auto Analysis process helps individuals develop skills like communication and critical thinking that are crucial to lifelong success.
How Auto Analysis Works
  • Auto Analysis automatically transcribes all Individual Project videos and analyzes them for rate of speech, speech clarity, and use of filler words.
  • Instructors can also specify Desired Terms to measure how often content-related terms (such as industry terminology, vocabulary terms, and brand names) are said.
  • Terms to Avoid can be configured to indicate that learners should stay away from certain phrases or topics.
  • It compiles this data into an easy-to-read report that learners can use for reflection before they decide to re-record or submit their video.
  • These reports contain delivery ratings (and content ratings, if enabled) that evaluators can use for reference in the assessment process.
  • Evaluators can also elect whether to include a numerical score with the color-based rating and how to weight delivery vs content in the overall score.
Accessing the Auto Analysis Report 

Next to the student's video, click the Auto Analysis badge. Note: if you do not see the icon, you may need to turn on Auto Analysis within the assignment configurations


From here, you can review the Auto Analysis report for the learner. By default, the report will measure clarity, filler words, and speaking rate to create a Delivery rating.

If Desired Terms are enabled, the report will display an additional rating for Content based on how well the learner met the specified targets for those terms. The ratings for Delivery and Content will be combined to create an overall rating.

Note: Users can also hover over the Auto Analysis badge to view a summary of their report.

This report provides a fantastic snapshot of how the learner delivered their message. There are several ways you can interact with this report:

  1. You can download a transcript in the form of a text file for the video.
  2. The individual ratings for each of the delivery metrics - clarity, filler words, and speaking rate, are located above the transcript. The metrics are accompanied by gauges so users can get a quick visualization of where they fall for each metric. Numerical scoring can be turned on or off within the assignment's settings. The default is “off”.
  3. Highlighting of top words and phrases, filler words and unclear words on the transcript are toggled by a drop-down menu. 
  4. Clicking on words in this list will show the user where they appear in the transcript. This list does not include stop words, which are small common words such as “the”, “a”, and “and”.


When accessing the report, users will be notified if Bongo is not confident it can accurately analyze the video due to poor video quality or different languages spoken. Videos shorter than 30 seconds are more likely to encounter inaccuracies in their analysis.

Auto Analysis as a Grade Type

If this grade type is selected, the Auto Analysis overall score for the submitted video will be used as the grade and does not require any user with an instructor role to assign the grade. This functionality is supported in both Individual Assignment and Question & Answer assignments. Click here for more information regarding Auto Analysis as a grade type.

About PhraseGen™

Configuring Key Terms

Instructors can configure Key Terms and phrases they would like learners to use in their videos. These key terms are used to generate a content rating that is presented in the Auto Analysis report in addition to the delivery ratings. If Auto Analysis scores are enabled, users will see a delivery score, a content score, and a combined score at the top of the report.

Instructors can set key terms and the desired frequency that they would like learners to use in their videos. To facilitate this process, instructors can use PhraseGen™ where they can paste in the contents of any document and the system will use AI to extract the most relevant terms and phrases to automatically populate Key Terms. Instructors can run PhraseGen™ multiple times or fine tune the results before saving. Instructors can also add terms manually if they want.

The list of Key Terms will show those items that were found using PhraseGen™ so an instructor can easily determine how the list was populated.

Please note, Key Term configuration is not set until the assignment settings are saved.
