I am a member in the Illinois National Guard and I have been struggling to figure out the correct way to calculate points. If anyone could provide me any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

You should not have to calculate the points yourself. You need to review your own 4100 for accuracy so that the calculations are correct. All of your awards (badges and AAM and above), date and score from APFT and IWQ, Army schools, Army online schools, college credits. IL ARNG should have their own PAM 600-8-19 or EPS MOI that gives the complete breakdown of points in each field.
These are max possible for each field:
Awards: 50
Weapons Qualification: 75
APFT: 75
Other resident courses:50
Self-Development courses (online): 75
Civilian Education: 75
Total admin points: 400
Board: 600
Total possible: 1000

I'm pretty sure the national guard have a PPW (Promotion point worksheet) Just like active duty and the reserves. You S-1 should be able to provide it for you. It is to help build your packet if not I'm sure you can google the most current one.

Points are calculated based on two areas of emphasis. There are 400 points that your chain of command, namely your section NCO will fill out a form and justify their evaluation. The second set of points come from things such as civilian education, awards, etc. that have a preset point value for each thing you do. After both of those are totaled, soldiers who meet time in grade and time in service requirements are ranked by score on a promotion list. The soldier with the most points gets the next opportunity for the region of the state they selected, or statewide if they selected that.

Basically, be dependable, knowledgeable, and have a positive attitude. Complain about nothing. Volunteer for the stuff nobody else wants to do. Do more than other soldiers. Go to college and get good grades. Stay out of trouble and be the go to guy you chain of command thinks of first when they need something done. I mean, never, ever, complain. Aside from staying physically fit and learning your job, that is how you will advance. Don't worry if it takes longer than you would want. I spent five years as a specialist waiting on an opening for promotion, even though I was at the top of the promotion list. That time helped me develop and learn the duties of the next rank up, and made me a more effective NCO. Learning to have patience, most of all, is a hallmark of maturity and dependability. More so than being proficient, we need mature leaders. One of the best things you can do is to cultivate an attitude that others matter as much as yourself.
