I have a form with a select

<select name="students" muliple>
<option value="student1">Student1</option>
<option value="student2">Student2</option>
<option value="student3">Student3</option>
<option value="student4">Student4</option>

I need to run a js function when options are clicked, something like:

<select name="students" muliple>
<option value="student1" onClick="check(this);">Student1</option>
<option value="student2" onClick="check(this);">Student2</option>
<option value="student3" onClick="check(this);">Student3</option>
<option value="student4" onClick="check(this);">Student4</option>

I have it like that but it is not running the function

the check(this) function is

      function test()
alert("I am an alert box!");

I would need the alrt box to appear when the options are checkd/unchecked. It is not happening
