Guide to Packet Numbering

  • Assign a unique (within the curriculum) packet number.
    • Note: if a packet has been recalled and re-entered,, you can re-use the same packet number.
  • Format must be X.X, up to 7 total characters including the period.
  • The following are our recommendations:
    • Packet numbers should closely follow numbering conventions used in pacing calendars for simplicity.
    • Exit tickets/classwork packets should start with the unit number, then the period, then the lesson number. For example, Unit 2 Lesson 7 would have the number 2.7.
    • All assessments should start with the number “0” before the period (assuming no curriculum materials would use this number), and an appropriate abbreviation for the assessment. Two reasons for this:
      • Assessments, which are likely to be viewed by the most people, will filter to the top of the packet list
      • This enables us to easily tell which packets are assessments (versus exit tickets), for example when filtering a long packet list).
