Removing student data from courses

Removing student data from courses

Is there any way to remove of student data from a webwork course, either automatically, or at least efficiently?

The student data at our university is that it is retained for one year from the end of the semester, and then destroyed.

I'd rather not delete entire courses, because instructors often like to be able to go back and export old problem sets when they teach that course again.

Would archiving be a better approach? (I don't know if an instructor without admin privileges can access an archive.)

I can manually go into a course, display all users, choose delete, and select all users except the instructor and the admin user, but it's not particularly efficient to do it that way.
