I think you cannot add a FILENAME to "answer file"! (What if the fiel does not exist?)
Leave the "/Plans_Studet" and it will work!
...
answer file "Open Student Plans file:" with specialFolderPath("documents")
## WORKS!
...

You could add this to the prompt:
...
 answer file "Open file <Plans_Studet>:" with...
...
And then check if the user chose the right file.


Best
