I click on the trash can thinking that will delete the results from that quiz and it does nothing.

Hi Sandy,

Clicking on this trash can ...

... should bring up a confirmation box like this:

Is that happening for you?

However, deleting the quiz will not only erase existing results and analytics, it will also delete the quiz, questions and all. 

So, if you're looking to "reset" the quiz so that the questions remain but the results are tossed away, you'll have to employ a small workaround:

1. Open the quiz editor, by clicking the pencil icon. 
2. Change the video/quiz title in some way. Any small change will work. Maybe changing something like "Math Quiz" to "Math Quiz - 1st Semester 2015".
3. Click "Save Quiz"


4. This will bring up a confirmation dialog that warns that existing results will be reset, which in your case is what you want, so confirm.

I hope that helps. And remember, if you need to archive existing results, you can download the reports in spreadsheet format before republishing (and resetting) the quiz.

Thanks for reaching out,
