Proper Way To Test A Solenoid

I have a purge valve that I would like to test. From what I understand the valve moves based on whether or not voltage is applied to it. How do you test this outside of the car? Can I use the car battery to test it via jumper wires?

If it is a 12V dc solenoid, yes you can.
