How can I measure the reflection Coeficient of a power sensor using an Agilent N5230A. Will it display the magintude and the degree angle at the same time?

The reflection coefficient (rho) is just an S11 measurement. Magnitude can be displayed by setting the format to "Lin Mag" (linear magnitude). You could set up a second trace to display phase, or use a polar format trace to display both at once using a marker.
If you need to measure the low-power sensors (like the 8481D) be sure to set the test port power to a vlue in the range of the sensor before measuring.
