By measuring it. Usually performance tests are ramped up gradually, i.e. starting with a single virtual user, adding an additional user every 60 seconds or so, etc. until the target load has been achieved. With this kind of a setup, you can compare the response times during the first 60 seconds with other sections of the result graphs.

Kri,
Lasse's comments mainly apply to load testing. For stress testing, response time is less important than making sure the load doesn't cause bugs, security holes or bring down the server.
 
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
