What do you mean by that?  Do you just want to see what might run?

You could throw some echo commands in front of the statements and put the statements in quotes.

link it to test ou where you have limited users/computers to get affected or apply the filtering so that specific group members can only get this policy applied.

I meant to say that I'd like to test the startup script by double clicking the batch file and verifying if the script mapped the proper network drives.

You can run the script at the command line.  If it is a batch file, just type the name of the file.bat.  Make sure you've named it with a .bat extension.  If it's a visual basic script run cscript file.vbs

It's better to run it command line so that you can see the output and any errors that may have generated.  If you just double click, it may pop up a window briefly, then disappear, far too fast for the average person to read.

I was told that there's a way to disconnect from the network and have it run.  This is what I meant to state in the beginning.

I'm not sure how you can map a network drive while disconnected from the network.  If you run the script, it would error out and fail to map the drive.
