[LON-CAPA-admin] Unable to view resources for some students!

When you display the table of parameters for one of the resources in  
the particular folder for one of the affected students what do you see  
for the parameter: hiddenresource

You could try setting "hiddenresource" explicitly to "No" for the  
specific folder for the particular student. In LON-CAPA's cascading  
parameter scheme, a specific setting overrides a more general one.
