What's the most the curve shifts from one test to the next?

What's the most the curve shifts from one test to the next? Is there a pattern, or a rough rule? Something like "it's never swayed more than +/- 4 from the previous test?"

This has probably been answered already, but I can't find it.

It seems to shift a lot from test to test, though the shift is getting smaller in recent years.

The last two tests have reintroduced a large amount of variation from test to test. -11 to -14 to -12...but there is only limited evidence that previous tests influence current ones.

Noticed a fluctuation from the '90s that went from -15 to -9. Which means we can probably eliminate curves harsher than -6 and easier than -18...but we could do that anyway.
