When I click "update question" after changing the point value and save the assignment, the assignment preview updates, but the student's submissions in SpeedGrader still have the original point values.
Hi Derek Popple Welcome to the Canvas Community! Unfortunately, point values on a question cannot be changed; check the blue boxed text at the top of this online lesson: Once I publish a quiz, how do I make additional changes? Be sure to follow the links given for both the quiz regrade and "fudge points" options. In your case, however, it sounds like you will have to use fudge points.
(For the record, it looks like it will be a lot easier to do this with the newer quiz engine, Quizzes.Next, as indicated here: How do I regrade an assessment question in New Quizzes? But until then, you will have to follow the directions given above.)
Hope this helps a bit, Derek!
Canvas developers - Please make sure that instructors have to option to manually overwrite grade from the grade book OR if at least from the speedgrader (this is a significantly slowed down option and also unreliable if fudge points is the only option). Right now point adjustment is multistep if it works at all: occasionally the due date individual adjustment allows changing late submission; but fudge points cannot be set to zero and this makes fudge point use unreliable
