Abstract

This article analyses the influence of the members of the New South Wales Board of Secondary School Studies (BSSS) on the Intermediate Certificate examination (IC) and the assessment procedures in the junior secondary years of the New South Wales (NSW) education system during the 1930s and 1940s. It indicates that the Board employed four tactics to modify the NSW examination system during the 1930s and 1940s. The Board focused on the IC in particular because the NSW education community expressed misgivings in regard to the value of this external assessment at the close of the third year of post-primary education.
