Default How to watch a lift

This is to all the coaches out there:

When watching a lifter lift, what are your eyes generally on? Feet, hip/back angle/ bar path, all of the above and more? My hunch is that as you get more experience coaching, you can watch more of the lift. But for argument's sake, lets assume you are watching a lifter that you didn't just make a correction on (not particularly more worried about feet/hip height/ extension) etc. What is a general priority of movements/positions to watch?

My hunch is to try to watch the lift from the bottom up, paying attention to the following in order:
1) tension on set up
2) hip back angle through first pull
3) bar path

Thoughts/advice are much appreciated!
