Electron promotion is when an electron is relocated to a higher energy orbital. You will be able to tell through the electron configuration because lower energy orbitals may not be filled before higher energy orbitals start having electrons in them.

electron promotion is when an electron absorbs a photon to jump from a low energy level orbital to a higher energy orbital. This can only happen if the photon energy matches the energy difference of the orbitals.
