The term Mathew effect was emerged from bible verses (Matthew, XXV: 29).
“For unto everyone that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance; but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath”
Matthew Effect in education was first coined by Walberg and Tsai in 1983 were they looked at cumulative advantages of educative factors.
They found that early educative experience predicts current educative activities and motivation, and all three factors contribute to the prediction of achievement.
It was Stanovich (1986) was the first to use the Mathew effect to describe how, in reading, those who start well tend to continue to do so, while those who do not are unlikely to catch up.
