You never check the transmission fluid with the engine off. There is a pump in the torque converter that circulates the fluid when running and pulls that level down. Proper fluid checking levels are in your owners manual. My 2003 Impala manual says this (paraphrased): They say not to check the fluid when the temperature is above 90 F. Let the car cool for 15 minutes. When temperature is below that, drive the car for 15 minutes. Park on a flat area. Put the vehicle in park. Set the parking brake. Shift into each position on the gear selector waiting 3 seconds in each position. With the vehicle in Park, pull the dipstick, wipe it clean, reinsert it and read it again looking at both sides of the dipstick. Some have 2 lines with hash marks in between and some have two holes drilled in the dip stick. In either case, the fluid should go between the two holes or be in the area of the hash marks. I never read that before. I only warmed up the car and did the dipstick thing. Apparently there is more to this than I thought.
