In the present study an additional measure of story narrative performance, story completeness, is evaluated. The completeness measure involves a tally of the critical story components mentioned by a storyteller. It was hypothesized that by combining organizational (story grammar) and completeness measures, story “goodness” could be quantified. Data from 46 normal adults indicated that this analysis was relatively sensitive in that it classified the story narratives of the group into four distinct categories of story “goodness”. This analysis should prove useful for the study of narrative discourse of brain-injured populations.
