Abstract: Programming Online Judges (POJs) are tools that contain a large collection of programming problems to be solved by students as a component of their training and programming practices. This contribution presents a recommendation approach to suggest to students the more suitable problems to solve for increasing their performance and motivation in POJs. Some key features of the approach are the use of an enriched user-problem matrix that incorporates specific information related to the user performance in the POJ, and the development of a strategy for natural noise management in such a matrix. The experimental evaluation shows the improvements of the proposal as compared to previous works.
