Nope. A skeleton or zombie has hit dice based on the creature type used, not based on the Caster Level. A skeleton created by a 5th level wizard and a 10th level wizard are identical. The 10th level wizard can control more undead, make more undead with a single casting, and animate creatures with a higher base hit die.

Edit to add: Your goblin, for example, will always animate as a 1 HD skeleton, or a 2 HD zombie, regardless of how strong it was in life.

Other than that, you've got it right.
