Thanks Sandy for the clarification. I appreciate the response since my experience with TLD data processing and assessment is minimal.
Here is the actual text in the document I was reviewing: "A single TLD is considered three data points (samples) because it contains three separate elements that measure dose independently. The variability of the readings is evaluated to determine if three data points are sufficient."
To summarize due to close proximity of the elements on the card and the lack of variability in the environmental radiation field there should not be much variability between the elements. If there is variability this may indicate an issue with the element correction.
