One of the main challenges to the validity and reliability of assessment systems is the generally known possibility of bias in these systems. This study aims to evaluate how employee engagement is impacted by performance appraisals. Data for the study were gathered utilising a structured questionnaire in a survey research style. The population of the study consists of 426 academic staff members at Federal Polytechnic in Ilaro, Ogun State. The Taro Yamane sample size calculation formula resulted in a sample size of 214 people. Following the study of the data using descriptive statistics, the hypotheses were examined using multiple regression analysis. The results of the study demonstrated that managerial appraisal has a major impact on how successfully workers carry out their tasks. In a similar vein, the feedback system and 360-degree reviews both significantly affect employee engagement. The study found that employee engagement in the study region is significantly impacted by performance assessment. The study suggests that to raise employee engagement, supervisors, directors of departments, and other senior officials in charge of assessing the work of subordinates should be objective about the performance evaluation process
