Just talking to friends
Jo
Kono Tesuto wa Kantan da.
Explanation:
The word "Test" has several meanings in Japanese, too.
When you want to talk about the school examinations and quiz, you also can say "Shiken" instead of "Tesuto". For the other kind of tests/examination, such as blood test, you might want to use a word "Kensa".

Also I'd like to mention about the ending word in this casual conversation.
You can say just "Kono Tesuto wa Kantan" without "da", or "dayo" instead of "da".

このテストは簡単です。


Explanation:
kono test wa kantan desu.

The word "test" has been adopted into Japanese and being used widely. I would say that the word "test" would cover any type of tests although an educational test is 試験 (shiken) and a medical/chemical test is 検査 (kensa).

tesuto wa yasashii ne?


Explanation:
this is much more informal for talking to friends. by adding a "ne" at the end it invites them to answer on the subject.
