Rikai's Kanji Cards site is a free study tool that's highly configurable to your own study level. For example, you can filter the cards shown to only the most common 500 kanji, and you can change the cards so that they show English and Kana, compounds and more. Not an on-line quiz -- you see the card, and then you flip it over. If it's a card you know, you move it to your known pile. Ones you don't know, you can put into your miss deck and you'll see them again, even on your next visit.
