Gauge for circular knitting

Here's a link (to a forum entry on knittinghelp.com) that talks about making gauge swatches for projects knit in-the-round. 

The method described involves knitting a row, sliding the work to the other end of a circular needle, then knitting the next row from the same side (leaving a long loop of yarn across the back).  Advantage: you end up with a measurable rectangle instead of a loop. 

Has anyone tried this method?  Are there other methods to recommend?
