Bulk Remove Quiz Users From Video Quiz

I am an instructor and I assign video quizzes for my classes. The students have 1 attempt per video quiz. If they end up retaking the course, their 1 attempt is carried over (it appears to be linked with the video quiz itself and not the semester or Canvas course), and they will not be able to attempt the video quiz in the new semester.

The only remedy I have found to let them attempt the video quiz in the new semester is: navigate to the video (under the My Media tab), click the analytics button, select the "quiz users" tab, and delete the attempts of each individual student manually. I then have to do this for each video associated with a quiz.

This process is tedious and time-consuming. Is there an option to remove all user data for all video quizzes at once? This would be incredibly useful at the start of each semester.

Here is more information about the process I used to create these video quizzes in case it is relevant. I make the video in Kaltura and upload to Canvas. Under the My Media tab in Canvas, I use the video editor to create a quiz (with embedded questions) based on the video. I embed this video quiz in an assignment by using the External Tool submission type and selecting the Kaltura Video Quiz option.

Hi @CaseyMachen,

I came across this unanswered thread while doing a community cleanup.  Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to do what you need (I'm both a Canvas and Kaltura admin for my institution, so I'm familiar with the issue).  The usual workaround we suggest are to either allow more attempts (but then other students get more as well) or creating fresh copies of the video quizzes each term (you can save a copy in Kaltura), but if you have a lot of quizzes, it can be a lot of work to duplicate and re-link everything in the course.

Apologies I don't have a better solution, but I did at least want to provide those options.
