There is an ICBO report put out by the Gypsum Association giving wall and
ceiling values.

Subject: Gyp. Board Screws

I am designing a one story wood framed motel type structure.  The room
partitions are about 12 feet on center.  I would like to use the gyp. board
partition as a shear wall, since there will be relatively light loads and
many walls.  Table 25-1 of the UBC has shear wall information using "cooler
nail".  Are there any shear wall values using drywall screws?
