The standard advice is to compare either the residual deviance or the
sum of squares of the Pearson residuals to the residual degrees of
freedom (i.e. (number of observations) - (number of parameters)). This
is essentially taking the advice for GLMs (see e.g. McCullagh and
Nelder, or probably any textbook on GLMs) and applying it to GLMMs.
