conversion rate changes

Hello, I'm having trouble in understanding this sentence (it's about using tests in a corporate environment):

"Sales and conversion-rate changes are frequently used as dependent variables in tests and are reliably measured for separate purposes".

What are conversion-rate changes? Could you provide a similar expression for me to understand?

    I take the phrase to mean changes in the daily ebb and flow of monetary conversion rates ie. U.S. dollar/Yen, Canadian dollar/U.S. dollar, etc. Having said that, economics is not anywhere close to being my forte. If you Google "conversion-rate changes", you will get many hits.

    Dimcl is spot on. National currencies are converted into other national currencies at rates that are called conversion rates. These rates fluctuate on a daily - hourly, minute-by-minute - basis.
