I can only confirm that is true in lots of cases.

When user testing will be part of the total result there must be a strategic plan in place at the same time to back up that the results are evaluated, shared with a diverse group of people within an organisation, used to make the product more accessible and usable, found issues being processed within the way of work and that a diverse group of employees will attend the user testing on a regular basis. 

Only then will the effect of such user testing have clear impact to be used in a measurable criteria system.

As I have said before, I think the mere fact that testing with users with disabilities has taken place should not be rewarded since it does not in itself change the quality of the site under test. An awful site stays awful even after a lot of user testing. If then, as a result of such testing, the accessibility and/or usability is improved, that should impact also the conformance to measurable criteria (whether absolute or score-based) - and I am happy to see those criteria extended to realms so far difficult to measure.
