This authors of this article present a new language assessment, the Narrative Language Measures (NLM), designed for screening, progress monitoring, and intervention planning purposes. The authors examine NLM for its ability to satisfy the requirements of the assessment of language in a Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. Specifically, they describe the extent to which the NLM reflects socially important outcomes, involves standardized administration and scoring procedures, is time efficient and economical, has adequate psychometric properties, and is sensitive to language growth over time.
