Basically, a total of 260 questionnaires were distributed to the sampled employees and 260 were returned which represented a 100% response rate. The 260 returned questionnaires were then analyzed using smart PLS which is specially used for Structural Equation Modeling, path analysis, and confirmatory factor analysis. It is also known as analysis of covariance or causal modeling software. A descriptive statistics and correlation analysis was performed.

The results of the study showed that performance appraisal has a mainly positive effect on employee performance in the banking sector of the South of Jordan. There correlation analysis showed that there was a positive and some negative association (Very strong association) between performance appraisal and employee performance.
