Can we use our participation in PISA to improve our maths learning levels?

Only once has India ever participated in a PISA test and so badly did we perform that it has taken us more than a decade to muster the courage to participate again in 2021. Even locally designed tests like ASSET and ASER have time and again shown the dismal standards of the Indian education system. While these assessment tools show us how terrible things are, can we also use these same tools to learn how to right the wrongs?
