How many projects in a design portfolio?

Curious as to what other educators in BFA, BA, or BD programs specializing in Graphic and Interactive Design advice students to put into their professional portfolios. Specifically how many projects do you encourage them to include and what is the range of scale of the projects? We are now suggesting 6-9 projects that are fairly robust. They typically include applications across platforms. I have heard and read that most employers only look at 1-3 projects, so wondering how many they actually need to focus on.
