How to properly detect the ssl/tls BEAST vulnerability?

I am trying to confirm how I can detect and validate that a host is vulnerable to the BEAST attack. At face value it seems that any configuration of TLS1.0 or SSLv3 using CBC ciphers is vulnerable. However after researching I see a lot about mitigation that involve prioritizing rc4 or using fragmented one byte responses (implemented in Openssl).

Does anyone have documentation on how to validate this vulnerability?
