520    The purpose of this study was to design software that 
       would allow beginning music students to practice and 
       improve their rhythmic dictation skills. The Computer 
       Assisted Instruction (CAI) software titled Music Tools: 
       Beginning Rhythmic Dictation was developed using  
       Macromedia Director 8.5 and is intended to help students 
       improve their elementary rhythmic dictation skills. The 
       test sample includes a heterogeneous group of twenty-two 
       students who evaluated the software. Data was collected 
       from the students via a pre-test and a post-test. The 
       statistical analysis of the pre-test and post-test 
       determined that the use of Music Tools  is a valuable and 
       effective method of improving students' rhythmic dictation
       skills
