Application/octet-stream ?? Help please

Greetings, Swamp dwellers, I need a little help with a confusing file. I am taking some college credits through Penn Foster correspondence school. Whenever they grade any of my writing assignments they leave a link on my student homepage to view the instructor's evaluation file. The problem is that the file shows up as an "application/octet-stream" with no actual file type extension, so I cannot get any program to actually open this and display it in English.

I can email my instructor and have them send a Word file, but it would be nice to skip that step and just download my evaluation. Do any of y'all know how get one of these to open?
