Army Enlisted Promotions Trend Report for
Sergeant E-5 and Staff Sergeant E-6


The Trend Report is a by-Military Occupational Specialty
(MOS) report of sergeant (SGT) and staff sergeant (SSG)
promotion (fully) eligible that will allow Soldiers to quickly
determine their approximate position in relation to their
peers. The updated Trend Report is published no later
than (NLT) the 24th of each month. The updated Trend
Report will not be published earlier than the AC cut-off
scores being published. As of January 2016 the trend
report will only show fully eligible Soldiers in compliance
with STEP policy.

Promotion point data changes daily on the HRC database.
The Trend Report is based on data from the 11th of each
month. This is the same snapshot in time used for monthly
promotion consideration to SGT and SSG. This report is
the latest report, and all previous reports are obsolete.

The sixteen “ranges” of points next to each MOS/eligible
list indicate how many fully eligible Soldiers on that list are
within the specified points range.

The rows containing an MOS followed by an asterisk
represents the number of eligible Command List
Integration (CLI) Soldiers.

The # ON LIST column is a sum of the number of Soldiers
in the sixteen ranges, and is equal to the number of fully
eligible published in the announced cutoff scores. This
column includes only fully eligible Soldiers from both
zones (PZ and SZ) of consideration.

The AVG PTS column shows the average promotion
points for all currently eligible Soldiers on the specified
MOS/eligible list.

The # OF PROM column shows the total number of
promotions allocated to the MOS/list during the last six
months. This total is equal to the sum of the promotions
that were published in the monthly cutoff scores for the 6
months indicated.

The PZ AVG / SZ AVG columns show the “6 MONTH”
average primary/secondary zone cutoff scores for that
MOS/list. For MOS that do not have 6 months of published
scores (i.e., new MOS) the average scores are
computed with the number of months that the MOS have
had published scores – the number of months used is
indicated in parentheses next to the SZ AVG column.

Language specific MOS (35P) has announced cutoff
scores by language identifier; therefore the PZ AVG / SZ
AVG columns for these MOS are indicated by asterisks.
All Soldiers in this MOS are otherwise represented as
explained above.
