In order to effectively measure capacitance of an MLCC (Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitor), it is important to use the correct industry standards for measurement conditions. Additionally, in the case of high capacitance capacitors, the use of quality LCR (inductance, capacitance, resistance) meters with the ALC (Automatic Level Control) turned on is necessary in order to perform an accurate measurement. This video details what settings to use, as well as when and how to use the ALC.
