“Determine the following for each narrative: 1) Prologue, 2) Central Issue, 3) Epilogue, 4) average sentence length (MLU), 5) which sentences are significantly above or below the MLU (You can just give me the sentence # and whether it is above or below – such as – Sentence #1 above, Sentence #4, below, etc.). Submit your answers to me through Moodle. I have included an Excel spreadsheet template that will help calculate the standard deviation for you. Just enter the number of words in each sentence in the cell for that sentence and eliminate any rows you don’t use and it will figure the standard deviation.
