Enjoyed reading this article as it sets out the rationale for digital badges and summarises research. Not an actual “evidence” study so no statistics as such.

 

Key ingredients:

“They have to present some enjoyment for the learner, they must recognize work that extends beyond a student’s typical academic ability and the student has to value what that badge represents.”
