Please Help. Need to detect if items are selected in proper order

Match is great at giving me feedback IF a list matches completely, but I need something to alert me that I am out of sequence as soon as it happens.

Think of a spelling bee. If the word to spell is "Apple" I need to know with every letter if it’s right or wrong. "A" good "P" good "k" wrong! and then I want it to start over if there is a wrong entry.

I have looked at zl.compare as well. This gives me feedback if the list does not match and I can start it over, but only when the entire list is given at once.

I was hoping that someone may be able to assist me at discovering a more robust version of the Match object. I really appreciate any response.

Thank you for the reply. I think your suggestion may just do the trick. I like how if the 2 lists are of different lengths it just ignores the extras. Thank you so much.
