I am having a problem getting the checked state of a checkbox after an onclick event. I have verified that the onclick event triggers but no matter how I try and check the state of the element (by name or by id) I am not seeing anything coming back. Below is a copy of the function I am currently trying to use to get it by the element ID and also the checkbox html code. The form name is addeval, if that is relevant.

<script type="text/javascript">
function RefreshScore()
       alert("N/A is checked");
      alert("N/A is NOT checked");

<input name="Section1Question1NAValue" id="Section1Question1NAValue" type="checkbox" onClick="RefreshScore()">&nbsp;<span class="auto-style8">N/A
