Do you want to say that you actually move the control surfaces while it glides?

sure,...why not? You can check if they are reversed or acting as they should

I should preface this to say that my first toss is usually just with power and no hands on the stick. I just want to see how it glides with the servos holding the control surfaces as I set them. Afterwards I'll give it a toss and see how it reacts to input. As I said it gives me the opportunity to see if I screwed up and have any reversed

I was asking to get a clear idea of the process . Next time I attempt flying the plane I will start with glide tests so that I can see if there are any problems, before I try to actually take off and fly.
