Picture of (TNL-2) Test of Narrative Language–Second Edition

The TNL-2 is a norm-referenced test that measures children’s narrative language abilities (i.e., children’s ability to understand and tell stories). Narration is an important aspect of spoken language, not usually measured by oral-language tests, that provides a critical foundation for literacy.

The TNL-2 enables clinicians to assess important aspects of narrative language without having to transcribe children’s stories. This saves hours of transcription time and provides a valid and reliable metric of narrative language development. The TNL-2 is a natural complement to other standardized tests that use contrived formats to assess components of oral language, and it is especially useful for diagnosing language-based learning disabilities.

Features of the TNL-2:

  • Functional assessment of narrative comprehension and narrative production
  • Alternating comprehension and production tasks, so children can profit from adult narrative models
  • Measures the ability to comprehend and produce three types of stories: a script, a personal narrative, and a fictional narrative
  • Scoring system for oral narratives that does not require clinicians to transcribe the stories
  • Clear, well-organized norms tables and administration procedures, as well as an easy-to-use record form
  • Fair and equitable assessment of narrative discourse for all children
