testing wrapper methods

my new company have started doing TDD on the new javascript webstuff.
I have written a javascript method:

I can't test it calls the service, as that is an integration test (fully understand)
so what can I actually test?
my mentor wants me to test the parameters are passed in correctly, but these are just constructed in the test.

Can you let the url for the AJAX submission be a fake one? In particular, just a simple one that always returns success or failure so you can test the function logs the right data?

a friend (yes my out of work conversations are THAT DULL) suggested i stub the ajax and test the path is correct so that if anyone changes the path in the method it isn't happy.
