You might be able to check the resistance accross the two pins, if you have a voltmeter/multimeter. If the coil is bad, there won't be any continuity.
Or you could just pull a coil and plug from your car, and put the plug on the coil you are testing, hold the plug threads against engine metal, and plug the coil in. You might also want to pull the fuel pump relay, since the car will run on 5 cyls. Have someone crank the starter, while you watch for spark.
