I'd like to make a document that would leave ample room for the reader to fill in answers on the sheet. (nothing fancy and interactive, just whitespace for writing on the printed version)

What packages/classes exist for achieving this? I suppose I could just use massive tables and lots of \bigskips but that seems suboptimal...

Here's an example of the sort of thing I want to achieve, I could add lots of space manually, but that doesn't seem ideal...

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}
  \begin{tabular}{|l|r|r|r|r|r|r|}
    \hline
    & A & B & C & D & E & F \\ \hline
    Spelling & & & & & & \\ \hline
    Grammar & & & & & & \\ \hline
    Use of literature  & & & & & & \\ \hline
    Strength of Argument  & & & & & & \\ \hline
  \end{tabular}
\end{table}
\end{document}

The exam package provides \fillwithlines{length} and similar commands. See section 7 of its manual.

I ended up just doing it by hand ( Source ), but I'll accept this answer as it has the most upvotes. –  Seamus Jan 28 '11 at 18:37

Some of those packages listed here in the TeX Catalogue could be useful: Typesetting Exam Scripts, Quizzes, Flashcards, and Questionnaires. The already mentioned exam package is also listed there.
