Technical personel (Professionals) are granted a initial rank of Rookie and will not change. These rookies are included in the totals calculation as listed in the chart:

Agent Medals

Victory Points are awarded automatically for each action. Promotions are granted at the end of the mission when suitable for a medal.

Medals are then displayed according to accumulated Victory Points

Awarding a medal to an agent depends on their acquired score, which is generally unknown to the player. Score is increased by active combat, wounding, and killing of hostiles. An enemy killed will add differing amounts to the total at the end of the mission, depending on the type.
Victory points awarded for killing:

Entity Victory Points
Buiding Defence 10
Brainsucker 4
Anthropod 10
Spitter 8
Multiworm 8
Hyperworm 5
Popper 8
Multiworm Egg 4
Chrysalis 3
Skeletoid 14
Micronoid Aggregate 15
Psimorph 30
Megaspawn 30
Queenspawn 50

The Medals

Agent medallions are displayed in the stat screen within the inventory-equip-screen. An agent will acquire Victory Points by:

Action Victory Points
Each Day 1
Each Mission 10
Each Health Lost‡ 1
Each Kill 1

‡ eg: lose 17 hitpoints = 17 victorypoints

The Overall Situation

Progression towards a medallion is linear. There is no reward for exempilary service or heroics. An agent can stay at base and never partake in any mission, yet may become fully awarded after slightly more than four years gametime.
Score totals displayed at the de-brief screen, eg: Tactical Mission Score is directly attributed to the total Victory Points acquired by agent kills at the end of any battlescape mission, and contributes to X-Com's overall performance at the end of the week.
