I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but just in case...

I attended a session at the CUNY Gen Ed Conference in May in which the
director of the math lab at Hostos Community College described their online
support services for students who did not pass the math proficiency exam the
first time around.  Students can take practice tests online, and Hostos has
it set up like a game, where the high scores are posted each day, etc.  They
have found that students are very motivated to keep trying because they want
to make a high score.  Apparently they even do math problems on their palm
pilots while they ride the subway.

Subject: On-line gaming or software related to student success

I have been asked by our Vice-President to explore possible on-line gaming 
sites or software related to student success, study habits, time 
management, test-taking etc.  I was wondering if anyone could point me in 
the right direction.
