InDesign displays the current zoom level in the tab with the document name in the upper left. It also displays the zoom in the status bar at the bottom of the window. Why are these different numbers? The tab is 100%, and the status bar is 66.67%
"…It's interesting that the two different zoom measures are always 3:2.…"
Hm. Do you scale your user interface?
( That's an InDesign preference. There are two options for this. )
FWIW: I never experimented with scaling my user interface, so it's just guesswork…

this is a preference for InDesign on Windows only.
Named UI Scaling. Should be the third tab in Preferences of an English InDesign.
And I just saw your post—thank you, Uwe. 😊
Never mind! I was in the middle of class and forgot that it was a Windows specific issue—I couldn't find UI Scaling on my Mac. 🙄
On a related note, the same student had a truncated New Document dialog box. Disabling the UI Scaling also fixed the display of that dialog box.
