The PhET research page contains an updated list of all research papers about PhET:
Descriptions of what the PhET team has learned about student learning and user interface design from student interviews:
Research showing that open conceptual questions lead to more student engagement than more guided activities:
Research showing that students learn as well or better in a laboratory and lecture with the real equipment replaced by the Circuit Construction Kit simulation:
General article about PhET, includes research showing that using the Wave on String simulation to demonstrate standing waves in lecture leads to improved performance on a concepTest over a traditional demonstration with a real string:
Research showing that students learn just as well when using Tutorials in Introductory Physics with the real equipment replaced by the Circuit Construction Kit simulation:
The development and assessment of a curriculum using the Photoelectric Effect simulation: In addition to research by the PhET team, the PhET simulations and Activity Guidelines are based on general research on how people learn:
