Hi Todd,

For a folder of resources,

- Go to a resource in the folder,
- hit PPRM
- pick the student and update the display
- scroll down to 'Slots of availability [Part: 0] (available)'
   - and in the user level, for enclosing map or folder, set the
     contents to the slot name
- scroll down to "Use slot based access controls [Part: 0] (useslots)"
  and for the course wide, enclosing map/folder level, pick the option
    "Yes, and the scope of student selected slot is the enclosing
    map/folder. When checking in, all resources in the map/folder are
    checked in."  (this will appears as map_map after being saved)

This is a bug that it is being displayed, this should only appear for
the student selectable option.
