So, you don't want to use "exam" mode with answer bubbles and
possibly bubble sheets?

For your own problems, you can modify the "size" parameter of the
answer field. If you never need automated grading, you can also start
out with the "essay" template - all <script>s, plots, etc, also work
in essay resources. The answer box there can be configured in width
and height. You could then use PGRDs to enter the grades.

If you use other people's problems, that however does not work ...
but you could include a blank resource between all problems to
generate some extra space. Something like

<html>
