That is exactly correct. If you look at the transmission pan, at the very bottom is a drain. Don't remove that. The fill plug (if I recall) is on the driver's side about 3 inches up on the side. That is where it is checked. To do this, the engine should be warm, running, and the vehicle needs to be on a flat surface in park. Unless you have a lift, you will have to lay on the floor to check it. Please make sure the vehicle is secure and can't move. All you do is remove the fill plug and trans fluid should come out. If it doesn't, you need to add until it begins leaking out the fill hole.
Here is a diagram to show you what I am talking about. (Below)
