A test could be to make a print to 25x25cm size on #2.1/2 paper and access the result.
The print should show a rich black and clean whites with a good range of tones between.
If the print fails two factors will effect the result. Density (length of development time) and contrast (agitation during development).
If the negative lacks density increase the time while if the density is OK increase the agitation. Check with the manufacturers instructions.
Another factor is the lighting in the original scene. Flat lighting will produce a flat negative and an increase in paper contrast will compensate.
After any adjustments are made test agin by making another print.
With experience a photographer looking at the negative will be able to access the negative quality, failing this making a print is the best solution.
