One of the great unsung resources for selection is the Merit System Protection Board (MSPB). Periodically they put out studies on a variety of topics related to HR, and they've issued some doozies on assessment. Although they typically have a federal government focus, many recommendations are applicable across all organizations.
Here are some of the latest & greatest:
Reforming Federal Hiring: Beyond Faster and Cheaper
Reference Checking in Federal Hiring: Making the Call
Identifying Talent Through Technology
Managing Federal Recruitment
They also have a newsletter called "Issues of Merit" that often has very good articles related to assessment, and it's easy to sign up for .
