A college professor claims that the entering class this year appears to be smarter than entering classes from previous years

Statistics

A college professor claims that the entering class this year appears to be smarter than entering classes from previous years. He tests a random sample of 16 of this year's entering students and finds that their mean IQ score is 116, with a standard deviation of 15. The college records indicate that the mean IQ score for entering students from previous years is 112. If we assume that the IQ scores of this year's entering class are normally distributed, is there enough evidence to conclude, at the 0.05 level of significance, that the mean IQ score, μ, of this year's class is greater than that of previous years?

Perform a one-tailed test and answer questions.

The null hypothesis:
H0:
The alternative hypothesis:
H1:

The type of test statistic:
(Choose one) Z, t ,Chi square, or F

The value of the test statistic:
(Round to at least three decimal places.)

The critical value at the 0.05 level of significance:
(Round to at least three decimal places.)

Can we conclude, using the 0.05 level of significance, that the mean IQ score of this year's class is greater than that of previous years?
Yes or No
