Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).

You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)
