Adams admitted that his efforts were in the nature of a first foray and could certainly be improved (1981: 242-43). ). First, he acknowledged that even the most intensive survey can fail to detect phases of occupation, especially earlier phases in long- 50 Scribes and Schools in Monarchic Judah inhabited sites, and can also fail to detect significant numbers of whole sites (see above, and cf. Lapp 1962: 89). Second, noting the common ancient practice of deeply excavating foundations of large buildings, he pointed out the difficulty of determining the areal extent of ancient occupational phases from the surface debris.

Systematic errors are also called Triases'; they systematically tend to push the data in one direction or another. Random error is simply the limit of the data's resolution, in a sense: it is the 'plus-or-minus' part of a datum. Since random error is tied to the method of data collection, it remains the same for each datum collected. Thus, the larger the data set, the smaller the proportionate error. Another way of looking at random and systematic error is that while random error proportionately decreases as the data set becomes larger, systematic error increases in proportion to increases in size in the data set with which it is associated.

The greater the need for such control, the more likely the presence of full-time administrators to facilitate the exercise of control by the elite class. 36 Scribes and Schools in Monarchic Judah Before we can use this model to evaluate schools, we must define 'schools' for the purposes of this study. Mettinger focuses on the question of schools in Israel using Egyptian models and, according to him, 'in Egypt all education was essentially scribal education' (1971: 140). ) Other definitions are possible.
