An answer to an essay question should include several facts. Currently, I put each of these required facts with a weight in a checklist. However, there are other things in an answer, that are not simply present or not, right or wrong, etc. In many questions, I ask for an example which might be worth 2 points. If it is perfect, I like to give 2 points, if it is good but with some minor issues, I like to give 1.5, if it is fairly ok i like to give 1 point, etc. In these cases, I would like a slider from 0 to 2 for the corresponding checklist entry.
