Hangman Game

This game takes all the words from a glossary or quiz short-answer questions and generates a hangman puzzle. The word to be guessed is represented by a row of dashes. If the student suggests a letter that occurs in the word, then it displays in its correct position. If guess is incorrect, the picture will display one element of the hanged man stick figure as a tally mark.
Here's its demo page for students on UVLe.
