One of the organizers addressed this on twitter:
,----[ https://twitter.com/realTimoBaumann/status/1202844419029970944 ]
| ppl are asked for consent on whether the data can be used for research |
| and ppl can opt out. they cannot, however, opt out from the testing as |
| it's part of the application process. try applying at a US university |
| without SAT and TOEFL/IELTS scores, or without a cover letter. |
There is also this public statement; the link was posted as a reply on twitter but not here as far as I can tell:
P.S. for the sake of transparency: I am sending this from my old Uni
Hamburg mail address because I am still subscribed to corpora with
this address; I left for Saarland University a year ago. I know
some of the organizers of the ST but am not involved in it.
