Everday Math and NWEA (M.A.P. testing)

Does anybody know if the publisher of Everyday Math (The Wright Group) is in any way connected to the makers of the M.A.P. test (Measures of Academic Progress) created by NWEA?

Our district adopted the Everday Math series this year and uses the NWEA to assess. Our M.A.P. scores jumped astronomically - not just a few teachers in our building but all teachers experienced dramatic increases in overall scores. Students who tested in the 40th percentile are now said to be at the 80th plus percentile! Knowing those children's abilities, I am incredulous!

I have not been able to find a connection, but many districts that have the math series also use the NWEA test. Is there a connection?
