The following research work focuses on the analysis of oral individual instruments for testing oral English proficiency such as the oral presentation, oral interview and oral performance. This topic is very important because every university student studying the Bachelor in English degree has to be evaluated in oral skill and all teachers must deal with evaluation. It requires that both, students and teachers know how to handle with this issue. The findings of the research reflect the advantages, disadvantages and criterion of the oral presentation, oral interview and oral performance. In addition good remarks and aspects of improvement were found during the evaluation process in the three previous oral instruments; for instance, the management of the oral test, the attitudes of the teachers such as being confident with the students, prepared in advanced with a guideline, being friendly or serious with students, those issues influence in students result in an oral test. On the other hand, positive and negative attitudes from the students and teachers were noticeable during the oral instruments development; the guidelines to record students’ performance have some gaps. Setting and equipment to keep data are also analyzed in this research. Therefore, oral proficiency has to be well tested, because if a student does not speak English very well, he will not be able to communicate accurately, that is the reason this research is helpful to students and teachers of the Foreign Language Department because both of them deal with oral evaluation every semester mainly in oral presentation, oral interview and oral performance.
