During the 2015-2016 school year, a total of 2,476 students were tested in Alaska. Of the 1918 juniors and seniors that were tested, only 9.96% were tested under Option 8. The remaining juniors and seniors had their test results sent to recruiters without parental consent.
The 20 largest testing sessions assessed a total of 1,147 students. 101 sessions tested 10 students or fewer.
The ASVAB test was conducted in 74 schools across the state. One of these schools reports that it made the test mandatory. Consequently, 8 students are confirmed to have been required to take the ASVAB; there may be more, judging from the numbers in some schools.
