Appeal Judge Testing and Training

How about appeal court judges be required to take a competence test occasionally?

I would suggest a test where they are given set of appeals (with the names removed), and be required to pick the cases where the appellant subsequently turned out to be innocent.

I think such testing might also help them recognise “reasonable doubt” more effectively.
