Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We have proposed aWeb-based JPLAS (Java Programming Learning Assistant System) to help students studying Java programming by themselves at home. By adopting the Test-Driven Development (TDD) method to verify the codes from students, JPLAS aims to reduce loads of teachers in addition to enhancing learning activities of students. In this paper, we propose and implement the statement ll-in-blank problem function in JPLAS as a trial assistance for code reading that has not been underestimated, although it is very important in studies of programming. In the statement ll-in-blank problem, a student is requested to ll a statement to the blank in a given Java code. By using a Program Dependence Graph (PDG), this function blanks an essential statement in the code. To evaluate our proposal, we generated multiple statement ll-in-blank problems using codes with similar procedures and applied them to students in a Java programming course in our department. Then, we found that the solution time of students decreased as they solved more problems.
