Objectives: The purpose of this study was to develop a storytelling-based assessment for aging and neurogenic disorders. We developed a story scenario and picture stimuli to be used in this assessment. Methods: In experiment 1, in order to select the most familiar folk-tale, familiarity and contents’ awareness, surveys were conducted for participants aged from their 20s to 60s. In experiment 2, for the scenario composition of the finally selected folk-tale, stories were collected from published books, and the initial scenarios and picture stimuli were produced based on the core content and Correct Information Unit. In experiment 3, a storytelling-based assessment was conducted for 147 young people and written data was collected. Based on the word-class analysis from the written data, scenarios and pictures were revised. In experiment 4, a total of 115 individuals (young: 60, elderly: 55) participated in the storytelling-based assessment and spoken data were collected. The final scenarios and picture stimuli were completed using the results of word-class analysis from the spoken data. Results: In the results of experiment 1, the Korean folk-tale ‘Heungbu-Nolbu’ was selected as the most familiar story. Through experiments 2 to 4, we completed the final scenario and picture stimuli which consists of eight episodes and contains a total of 24 sentences and 32 CIUs. Conclusion: Our result is meaningful in providing the theoretical evidence for the development of a Korean version of storytelling-based language assessment. It can be applied to various age groups and neurogenic disorders.
