Matthew Effects in Reading: A Comparison of Latent Growth Curve Models and Simplex Models with Structured Means.
Bast, Janwillem; Reitsma, Pieter
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v32 n2 p135-67 1997
Two competing longitudinal models, the latent growth curve model and the Simplex model, are used to represent the Matthew effect hypothesis (K. Stanovich, 1986) that the gap between good and poor readers increases with time. Theoretical and empirical arguments support the Simplex model, although it is argued that it should be refined and clarified. (SLD)
