How do you know when oxygen sensor is bad?

An oxygen sensor is bad when it is no longer performing inside a set of parameters that are designated and optimal. The oxygen operates in a very narrow window of voltage and provides feedback to the engine to adjust the air/fuel ratio to maintain performance and emissions. If the sensor is bad and returning poor data, the performance, emissions and mileage will suffer.
