Brake pad wear sensor?

Replaced my rear pads/rotors ~1k miles ago, reused wear sensors. Today had the wear indicator light cut on. I assume it's related to something I mucked with in the rear. I haven't taken a look at anything yet.
1) Is there a way to pinpoint which sensor is tripping?
1a) I'm guessing that the sensor works by completing a ground circuit when it contacts the rotor--is that right? If so, do I just disconnect the sensor and check for continuity between the leads?
