This study aims to analyze the traditional evaluation indicators (rate of return on equity) and the modern assessment indicators (economic added value) for Jordanian commercial banks, as well as the implications of these measures on the performance evaluation and the market value-added. To achieve the objective of the study, we use panel data for the listed banks during the period 2000 – 2013. The results reveal that there is a statistically significant positive effect for the rate of return on equity and the economic value added on the market value-added in the Jordanian banking industry, but the economic value added provides better results.
