MAP or MPG Testing Anyone????

Does anyone else out there use MAP or MPG testing in their district? This is our district's first year with it and I was just wondering what your school did with the information. How do they use it? Do the projected scores normally align with the actual scores at the end of the year?

For those of you that don't know what it is, it is a standardized test that even our little kindergarteners have to take and it tells you where they are, where the rest of the district is, and where they predict they will be at the end of the year. As beneficial as it sounds, they are talking about basing our evaluations on the test and the reports still need some work before they are user friendly. Let's just say we are coping with it the best we can.
