how can you tell if the chain is too tight or too loose?

Movement. Also after adjusting it's a good idea to sit on the bike and check that there still is slack on the chain with the rider on.

In general:
too tight -> whirring noise and footmassaging pegs while on the road
too loose -> very jerky pickup on closed throttle/open throttle situations
