When used in biblical scholarship in such phrases as biblical criticism, higher criticism, and form criticism, it means evaluating evidence to arrive at a reasoned judgment concerning the matter under investigation; it does not imply that the reader is taking a negative or "criticizing" position over against the Bible; our textbook suggests that critique may be a better term to use.
