1. Check the manual on use of $_POST and notch down your error reporting level. As these vars have not been defined PHP is throwing an error.

2. While you are at it, and assuming that your variables are all received correctly, why not simplify your sql?

insert into test_scores set field_one = '$field_one', field_two = ''$field_two ... and so forth. It makes debugging INFINITELY easier and gives you more control.

3. Not related to your question at all, what's the type of your first field? Does it allow NULL's? If so then default it to NULL. (Something tugging at the back of my mind says that a NULL should not be assignable, but that's another issue.)
