WHAT SHOULD THE BATTERY READ ON METER WITH A GOOD ALTERNATOR?

2005 Pilot just died while driving. Put a meter on the battery and it was low. So I assumed alternator and/or battery. Removed battery and determined it was bad. Replaced and put the meter on. 12.6V with engine off. With engine running, the voltage didn't change. I assume the alternator would have brought it up to around 13-15V. Increasing RPM increased voltage which would lead me to believe the alternator works.
