How to search for phrases in any student's quiz essay revisions?

I just discovered the log of student activity attached to quizzes that lets me see them typing their essay answers. With it, I discovered a student who pasted an answer from Quizlet, then retyped it with with a few changes. I would like to search for any student who's answer contained that text - even if they later rewrote it. Is it possible to search through every revision of every student's essay on a quiz?

Not that I know of. You can download all the answers in one file, and then run an excel script to make individual files for the students and upload them to a text-matching platform (eg: Turnitin) if your university has that as an option. I don't know if you can download the revisions as bulk in any of the APIs. That might be worth asking your uni admin about.
