If this is a standard outlet then the wiring is to the brass screw black or red depending on what wires your using, to the green screw the ground and to the silver screw the white.
If this is a split then the center tab on the brass side of the receptacle is to be broken and the black goes to the top screw and the red goes to the bottom.

Hope this helps
