If vehicle hasn't been run recently, the voltage will be approximately 12.3 volts. Then you start it, run at speed for a few minutes as you watch the voltage on your voltmeter climb a volt or more. No climb = no alternator output.

You can do another test, but unless you are just curious or want to dig into the alt internals, it isn't worth much. It tells you whether the problem is the VR or some other area of the alternator. On the back side of alt is a "D" shaped hole. Inside that hole is a small metal tab. When a screwdriver is inserted & touches tab, it shorts that tab to the side of the "D" hole and this will provide full field current and if all else is well the alternator will output its maximum.
