Is JAVA the best way to read in a text file, and then compare it to the students input, one word at a time?

Thanks, Diane

Scripting languages like Perl or my old favorite REXX are well suited to string handling. Java will do perfectly well, though, and if it's your goal to get better at Java any little task like that will be good practice.

Also depends how you want the results displayed or if you want it integrated into some other program.

For example, there are some advanced diff programs that have extensive user interfaces and visual displays, even though they might be based on diff processing techniques that are years old.
