In university students do two weeks of "internship" ie student teaching to "learn" how to teach. When I got my teaching credential in California I spent the first SEMESTER teaching one class in high school. The second semester we had to teach 3 classes. All of this was under the supervision of a "master teacher" who assisted us along the way. Knowing how to teach is way more than a "test."
