Handyman help needed

I need to measure the change in angle of concrete wall during a site trip next week and I am trying to locate a tool locally that I can use.

I need to measure a reflex angle (an angle greater than 180) of the wall face. Any ideas what would be best/easiest? It looks to be too awkward of a location to use a straightedge and measure the inside angle and just add 180.

Thanks.

^Thanks.

I know how I need to find the angle, I just needed help deciding what was the best suited tool to use. And it had to be available locally as I am leaving in two days.

I ended up with a bevel square and a protractor, thanks dukie!

Late to the party but I've used this tool before and it's very easy to use/very simple:

Johnson Level & Tool and Tool 700 Magnetic Angle Locator - Amazon.com
