Just look inside the PCV hose for signs of oil migration.
Aftermarket valve covers are infamous for poor breather baffling and mislocated pcv holes. If the pcv is functional and the opposing valve cover is well vented then the dipstick comming out indicates serious trouble.
You can use google to find the proceedure on leak down testing.
