To assign an instructor-assignable slot to a specific student for an  
exam you need to set the "Slots of availability [Part: 0] (available)"  
parameter at an Enclosing Map level for a particular student.

However, if there are more than a handful of students you might want  
to create a group, and make those students who will be assigned to the  
specific slot members of that group. Then you would set the "Slots of  
availability [Part: 0] (available)" parameter at an Enclosing Map  
level for the group to which they belong.
