Hi  @kthovson  Welcome to the Canvas Community. Canvas gives you the ability to create a grade scale for an entire Canvas course site, and the student's letter grade will be based upon the percentage that you see in the Total column when this is done.  There are instructions for doing this here:

Bear in mind you (and your students!) will see this immediately on your respective Grades page, so I might suggest you try it first, if you like, on your institution's Beta or Test installations in the course site since this sounds like your first time doing it, but obviously that's entirely up to you. 

And finally, if you wanted to "nudge up" (or down) a specific student's grade, there is a way to do this via the override feature, though as that documentation indicates this is an opt-in feature for the course.

I hope this, Katie. Stay well and stay healthy!
