Plotting the polarization ellipse

So if I simply take the square root of the intensity value as a function of time I can plot that against rotational angle in a polar plot?
As a function of angle not time, right.
With a quarter wave plate, you could check the direction of rotation of the field - find out if you have more clockwise or more ccw polarized light.
