I've been reading up on some of the older questions just out of interest and found myself wondering what was awarded as a result of them.

For example, it's clear what reputation points were awarded for asker/answerers, etc., but is there a method by which it's possible to view any badges that were gained from a particular answer?

I figured out that you can go to a user's page, click on a badge and see what answer/question it was awarded for, but I'd have liked to be able to see somewhere on a question that user X gained badges Y & Z for their efforts.

Is this possible, and I just don't know how to do it?

No. There is no such tool.

However, there are certain badges that will be awarded for the posts. You can know more about them via reading Badges.

Here you can see, that badges like Nice Question, Good Question, and Great question are awarded when a question reaches the score of 10, 25 and 100 respectively. So, if you see a question that has a score of 10, the poster would definitely have a Nice Question badge. That's true for most of those Questions and Answers badges.

There are also badges which you cannot know if are awarded from a question's page. You will have to go to user's profile to know more.

You must log in to answer this question.
