Because there is no practical way to prevent cheating.  Any scores are on the honor system.  This is OK if grades are not used for competitive placement, but without grade-based competitive placement, I don’t see that the scholar class has a fighting chance against the money class for college admissions to those places where the degrees are valuable.

be tested, so the work is not really subject to any credible metric, so
their grades are mostly meaningless, so they don't do the work.  Or just do
enough to kinda get by, after a fashion.  Adam Smith's invisible hand of
capitalism applies to studies as well as paid labor.  

In remote learning, the academically rich get richer, the poor get nothing.
