[IPAC-List] Test-Retest Intervals for Selection Assessments

Colleagues -

Can anyone point me toward fairly recent journal articles or other professional publications (e.g., conference presentation, poster) addressing the issue of test-retest intervals for selection assessments?  I'm specifically interested in research focusing on internet-based/web-based testing using cognitive assessments, non-cognitive assessments (e.g., biodata, personality), and situational-judgement assessments.  CAT models would be a plus.  I'm not as interested in reviewing test-retest reliability (although that is of interest), so much as what is an appropriate retest interval in a selection setting.  The industry standard seems to fall between 6 and 12 months, although I've seen shorter and longer intervals.  What evidence do we have to back up this standard?

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to my U.S. colleagues.
