I'm doing my coursework for my gcse history and I have to evaluate sources that we use in our essay. Our teacher didn't really explain this well, how would I do this?

COPL - content, origin, purpose and sometimes limitations
talk about content, talk about origin (author, date of release, country of origin etc), talk about purpose, limitation is what is the source missing? is the bit theyre missing out on purpose? why would they do that?
then evaluate, based on the those points, is it reliable? (if that is what ur teacher wants u to answer about the source)
