Hi  @sharon_r_yoder and welcome to the Community! Are you referring to the way to set the value of an assignment in general?  If so this document explains where the value of an assignment may be determined, How do I add or edit details in an assignment?.  If you indicate that grades will be shown as points, the raw point value is given to students in the grade book.  If you indicate instead to show grades as a percentage, Canvas calculates the percentage the student earned and displays this in the grade book.  Students who go to an assignment in Canvas are able to see its value and they can determine this as well in the Grades tab of the course.

Does this information help?
