The settings recommended in the leaflet in the film carton or printed inside it give an excellent guide. Take a meter reading when the lighting condition matches the printed guide and check for agreement.
There was a time when meters were calibrated with an EV scale that corresponded with the scale marked on lenses with shutters linked to the aperture scale. They relied on ASA/ISO to be set on the meter. Come to think of it, that's the way my (relatively) modern Sekonic works.
