Emerging Procedures in Narrative Assessment: The Index of Narrative Complexity

from Topics in Language Disorders

This article summarizes norm-referenced and criterion-referenced measures of narration and introduces a new criterion-referenced narrative scoring system called the Index of Narrative Complexity (INC). The INC was designed to be used as a progress-monitoring tool. A preliminary study of the use of this scoring system is reported that yielded evidence suggesting that the INC can be scored consistently, yields similar scores across five elicitation formats, is sensitive to change after intervention, and correlates highly with the Test of Narrative Language. These results support the use of the INC as a clinical tool for evaluating the outcomes of narrative intervention.
